The Alocasia cucullata is a real jungle plant with fresh green leaves. This plant can grow up to 4 meters! When the plant is still small, the leaves are raised, but as the plant grows older, the leaves will start to hang down more. When a new leaf is formed, an old leaf is often shed.
If this plant gets too much water, small drops will appear at the leaf tips. This way the plant drains excess water. This water can stain wooden surfaces and / or fabric surfaces and is also irritating to the skin and toxic to pets. So water the plant moderately.
The soil may feel slightly damp, but not wet. The Alocasia cucullata loves high humidity and a lot of light, but not direct sunlight. Don’t give this plant cold water, but water at room temperature. Give this fast-growing plant nutrition regularly.
Alocasia is a plant genus that originally comes from the jungles of Southeast Asia to Eastern Australia. This genus contains around 80 tropical and sub-tropical plants.
