Alocasia Polly - African Mask


Nothing separates a homeowner’s living space apart from the rest than a plant like the African Mask Alocasia Polly. This plant isn’t from Africa, it’s from the Philippines, but it gets its name from the hand-carved ceremonial masks made in Africa that it resembles. The uniquely textured foliage of this plant make it look almost as if the leaves are plastic. The Alocasia's natural environment is very humid, so this plants needs lots of spritzes and consistent watering.
