Zebra Alocasia (Alocasia zebrina)

The Alocasia zebrina owes its name to the unique – and eye-catching – yellow and black zebra print-esque markings found on its stems that contrast with its lush green leaves. Its leaves are in fact believed to mirror the floppy ears of an elephant – hence the Alocasia zebrina's other name, 'elephant ear'.
