African Mask | Alocasia Poly
 
African Mask
Plant Features:
African mask -- also called Alocasia Poly -- is a stunning houseplant. The dark, shield-shaped foliage is accentuated by white veins running throughout the leaves. The plant will flower occasionally, sending up a spike with a light yellow flower, but the foliage is the reason the plant is grown. African mask is the perfect plant for high-humidity areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.
