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. Combine with the Swiss cheese plant, Monstera deliciosa for tropical tranquility in your home.
Ditch the drought! Make sure to keep your Alocasia’s soil moist (not wet) at all times to keep it happy and healthy.
Alocasia have a dormant period where leaves will fade and die so do not be alarmed when this happens. During this period, the plants will require less water, so simply moisten the soil from time to time.
Time to get steamy! If your Alocasia is looking a little wilted, pop it in the bathroom to soak up those raised humidity levels.
