Artificial Alocasia: Trendy tropical plant for your home
With its beautiful leaves, the Alocasia is a true decorative wonder. So it is not surprising that it is so popular in domestic households. However, there is one drawback: the alocasia is difficult to keep as a houseplant and its sap is poisonous. It needs a lot of sunlight and water. In addition, it is sensitive to spider mites. Fortunately, you can resort to an alternative that has become increasingly popular in recent years: the artificial Alocasia plant.
The increasing demand was the reason to include several varieties and versions of the Alocasia, which is also called elephant ear, taro or giant ear, in our online shop. You will find the most graceful plants and bouquets from a height of 60 centimetres. Do you have a little more space available? Then choose our deluxe versions, which almost look like trees with their heights of 125 and 165 centimetres. Of course, the medium and giant leafy branches also make an impression. They form the perfect base for a special bouquet or a creative arrangement.
The Alocasia in the wild
The characteristic leaves of the Alocasia are strongly reminiscent of elephant ears. They alone give the plant a unique charm with a certain touch of ostentation and omnipotence. Originally, the Alocasia comes from the areas from Asia to the east of Australia. The genus belongs to the arum family (Araceae) and comprises up to 97 different species. The individual varieties have different leaf colours and markings. However, they can all be recognised by the same shape of their large, pointed leaves, which can reach a diameter of 1.5 metres in the wild. In the tropics, the leaves therefore often function as shelters. Alocasias are fast-growing plants that constantly renew themselves by shedding their old leaves. The sap of the Alocasia is poisonous and irritates both the skin and the mucous membranes. The shoots (rhizomes) of the plant are cooked and eaten in Asia.

This way we can guarantee you a unique assortment in which the plants look almost like the real thing.

Choose between a variety of fake Alocasia plants
We do not offer every Alocasia species as it occurs in the wild, but we do have the most famous, beautiful and popular ones. These include the most common Calidora - an attractive plant with green ribbed elephant ears. Incidentally, the artificial leafy trees we offer also belong to this species. With the skeletal Amazonica we present you a real speciality in our online shop. With its black-green leaves and cream-coloured veins, it is a real feast for the eyes. And then there is an artificial Alocasia whose leaves are coloured red on the underside, giving it a completely different look. Have you already decided on your favourite or do you need more inspiration?
Here is a summary of the three Alocasia varieties that you can expect to find with us:
- Alocasia Calidora: Plant with large, dark green and ribbed leaves. Available as a plant in 60, 80 and 115 centimetres and as a bunch with cuttings in 60 centimetres as well as two different deluxe versions in 125 and 165 centimetres height.
- Alocasia Amazonica (Polly): More compact species with rough, arrow-shaped leaves that look almost black and have cream-coloured leaf veins. It is called a skeleton plant for this reason and is available as a plant 60 centimetres tall.
- Red Alocasia: Two species in which the pointed, dark green leaves are streaked with white veins and the underside is coloured red. As a plant it is offered at a height of 75 centimetres and as a bunch with cuttings at a height of 65 centimetres.
Even taller and more luxurious: Alocasias with an impressive effect
Big, bigger, biggest! Exclusive, more exclusive and most exclusive! If you want to make an impression at home, in your catering business or at the workplace, take advantage of the luxurious effect of our artificial Alocasia plant in the deluxe version or the artificial leafy branches in sizes M or XL. The gigantic deluxe version of the Alocasia Calidora measures no less than 165 centimetres. It is built around five real wooden trunks and has 59 leaves in various shades, sizes and growth phases that are hardly distinguishable from the original. This gives it an unmistakably realistic effect.
Have you also already discovered our giant artificial Alocasia leaves? They make an excellent creative addition to an arrangement. Just close your eyes and let your mind wander to faraway places. Near the leaves, you might even be able to smell a typical tropical rain shower.
Cleverly presented is half the battle!
You have chosen a beautiful Alocasia, but you don't know exactly where and how to present it? No problem! We will be happy to inspire you. On the left side of almost every product you will find pictures with a number of combination suggestions with decorative pots and planters. Many Alocasias, for example, shine solo in the magnificent luxury vase "Loft" made of aluminium But other materials, such as wood or shells, will also show off your plant perfectly.
Do you like the almost black coloured leaves of the artificial plant Alocasia Amazonica? Then create a striking contrast with the help of a bright white decorative pot. Or how about several bunches together in a long bowl? With the artificial leaves of the Alocasia in XL format, you can also conjure up a tropical atmosphere with ease. Place them individually in a tall vase or use them in a creative arrangement.
Order your artificial Alocasia plant from us and we'll ensure you get the highest quality
When you decide to buy an artificial Alocasia from us, you can be sure that you will get the very best quality. It is the result of years of experience and cooperation with the most reputable partners on the market as well as our own factory in China. Thanks to the wealth of botanical knowledge we have acquired as a former fresh flower grower, we design most of our range ourselves. We have our plants made exclusively and with the greatest care from the highest quality materials, such as strong solid plastic and delicate artificial silk. As a result, our range is often unique and characterised by a level of detail that you won't easily find anywhere else.
We also do not like so-called "fake plants". A bare-headed tree or a measly plant that you can see through, that discolours in the sun in no time and falls apart when you touch it, looks unattractive. For this reason, you will not find them at Maxifleur.
