INDOOR PLANT - Alocasia Cucullata in 12cm pot

This tropical indoor plant is part of the Alocasia group of plants, or elephant ear plants, known for their large leaves. Alocasia cucullata is one of the smaller varieties, making it an excellent choice for a bookshelf or table top.  Alocasias are native to Southeast Asia’s tropical rainforests.
The Alocasia cucullata has beautiful heart shaped glossy green foliage with prominent veins on tall green stems. Also known as Buddha's hand it is believed to bring good fortune and is often kept in Buddhist temples across its native Thailand and Laos.

Thrives best in bright conditions to partial light shade. Avoid direct sunlight as this will scorch the leaves. Likes to be kept warm, choose a spot in your home where you feel warm and cosy and this little plant will thank you for it.


Alocasia plants tend to thrive best with a constantly moist soil. "a little less in the winter, a little more in the summer" -  but preferably no large quantities in one go! Do not allow the soil to dry out. Little and often is a good approach.


This Alocasia will be best planted in a 17cm Mr Kitly pot, allowing great circulation for the plant. If a ceramic plant is more your style look for a pot approximately 15cm in diameter and with drainage - an Evergreen Collective Finch Pot for example would make an ideal combination. 

If you'd like us to do the dirty work for you simply request your plant to be potted into your chosen pot and we'll take care of the rest!

*Note: The plant shown is an indication of how healthy and fabulous all of our hand selected plants are! Your plant may not be the exact plant pictured but it will be of the same quality.
