Alocasia amazonica is the most prominent member of this genus. Gray Masks and Elephant Ear plants are common names for most Alocasias.

At maturity, the plant can reach a height of 3 to 6 feet. You may see the plant reaching up to 9 feet in open spaces or outdoor plantations. These tall peeps, however, are rare.
