(syn: Alocasia x portora 'Portodora') This superb alocasia hybrid was selected by Ron Weeks from seedlings of an Alocasia x portora cross (Alocasia odora x Alocasia portei), made by LariAnn Garner of Aroidia Research. Alocasia 'Portodora' makes a stunning upright clump that is essentially an improved Alocasia macrorrhizos. Each giant, green, heavily-scalloped leaf is held sturdily upright atop a thick, muscular, purple stalk. Alocasia 'Portodora' elephant ear is truly an architectural specimen plant for any garden. As with all elephant ears, a moist, rich organic soil is best. A good, thick winter mulch helps prevent rot caused by cold, damp soils.
