Description
Borneo Giant - The king of all in this group; 7'- 10' tall with leaves up to 5' wide, this is the plant that will make the biggest impact in your tropical garden, it dwarfs the other plants! Prefers well-drained soil and partial shade to full sun; winter hardiness zone 9-10. This item is a PLANT, and will arrive in ~4" pots from tissue culture.

Huge, critter resistant elephant-ear-type leaves which normally point to the heavens; add lots of focal impact in the tropical garden and summer patio containers; native to tropical S. and S.E. Asia, these great plants sway and 'sing' a special song in the warm, mid-late summer breezes; performs best in compost rich soil with adequate moisture;  will arrive in ~4" pots from tissue culture. (These are best grown in 70°+ soil or start indoors ahead of time on a heat mat).
