These mammoth green leaves are known as Quequeshque or Orejas de Elefante, Elephant Ears, in Guatemala because of its gigantic size. The quequeshque leaves size, of course, is not apparently obvious if they are presented like in the image above, without a point of reference. So, if you want to have an idea of the enormous size of the Elephant Ears leaves, please, click on the image below to see an enlarge version with human figures in the frame for comparison.
Don’t forget to browse the Guateflora category for other fine specimens from exuberant Guatemalan plants.
Now, can anybody guess where in La Antigua Guatemala these photos were taken?
