Hi everyone...

I think I have the correct name... The one I had was a white variegated alocasia EE.

I think I asked the same question last year, but I was unable to purchase one then... so forgive me if I seem repetitive. I had one of these beauties two years ago and lost it... I really want another one. Does anyone know where I can buy a small plant of this for reasonable $? When I look on eBay, all I find are international sellers.

Thanks in advance...
Have a blessed day!

In the past I've seen some available at the Spring Plant sale at Mounts Botanical Garden at West Palm Beach, Fl. This year the sale is in the latter part of April - if you are still interested at that time, I'll see if I can find one there for you.

Thank you LariAnn! If I haven't found one by then, (and I don't forget) I may certainly ask for your assistance in that.

Thanks mjsponies... The website actually says they are out of stock. :(

I will keep searching... Let me know if anyone else comes across them!

Thanks again!

That Zone 9 Tropicals price is pretty good. It works out about $Au15 or 16. Here they're about double that price.

everyone that likes ears needs this plant.. I cant remember who i bought mine from but it was a very nice lady that had it listed on here... Its a show piece in my yard that's for sure... Sadly it hasnt multiplied as fast as i would have liked it to.. Plus moving last year i lost a few bulbs... I finally have 3 plants that are finally starting to have a few pups coming up, so i can start to fill all the orders from friends and family.. I would recommend this plant to everyone its worth the money... Heck its worth even more then what they are asking for them... Truly stunning...

Had you found one? Try Well Spring gardens and they are having clearance right now.
