How The Dwarf Elephant Ear Makes You Happy:

  • The Dwarf Elephant ear is an air purifier.
  • As a fast grower, the Dwarf Elephant Ear will treat you with new leaves on a regular basis and delight you with its strong tropical appearance as it grows.
  • Easy to care for. Enjoying your brightest spot and regular watering, your Dwarf Elephant Ear will treat you to lush growth and genuine jungle attractiveness.

Where The Dwarf Elephant Ear is Happiest:

  • Hailing from a tropical environment, the¬†Dwarf Elephant Ear¬†is happiest in warm, humid environments with¬†bright light.¬†Keep away from direct sunlight as harsh South African rays can burn its leaves.
  • Keep the air around it moist or place it in an already¬†humid environment.
  • You can mist the leaves every now and then¬†(with a spray bottle or mister) to enhance the humidity in the air around your Dwarf Elephant Ear.

Watering The Dwarf Elephant Ear:

  • Keep¬†the soil of your¬†Dwarf Elephant Ear¬†moist at all times.
  • Avoid wet soil and the plant sitting in water constantly.
  • Water when the top 2cm of the soil in the pot has dried out and allow the water to run out the holes at the bottom of the pot when watering.

Feeding The Dwarf Elephant Ear:

  • Fertilise your¬†Dwarf Elephant Ear¬†once every 2 weeks¬†during Spring, Summer and Autumn (the growing season) with a liquid plant food.
  • You can stop fertilising during Winter.
