This Alocasia cucullata is beautiful. It has glossy, heart shaped leaves that sit on top of tall green stems. This leafy green plant is also known as a Buddha's hand and is believed to bring good fortune. It is often kept in Buddhist temples across Thailand and Laos, where it originates from.
In the winter your alocasia will become dormant and the leaves will fade in colour and die back. Don't panic! Just cut back on watering and come spring, your plant will flourish.

Keep the soil moist and water with warm water. Do not allow the soil to dry out. Little and often is a good approach. Needs a moist environment with above average humidity. Stand on a pebble tray to improve humidity and mist frequently.
Thrives in bright conditions but avoid direct sunlight as this will scorch the leaves.


Toxic if eaten for pets and humans.
Delivered in a 17cm nursery pot.
