Description

Meet the Alocasia Cucullata, also known as Chinese taro, Chinese ape, Buddha's hand, and hooded dwarf elephant ear. With its unique leaves and elegant appearance, this plant brings a touch of the tropics to your home.

Origin

The Alocasia Cucullata originally hails from the tropical rainforests of Asia, particularly from countries like China, India, and Sri Lanka. In these lush environments, the plant thrives under the shelter of larger plants and trees. Additionally, the Alocasia Cucullata is considered a symbol of good luck and is often kept at Buddhist temples in Laos and Thailand.

Care

Place the Alocasia Cucullata in a spot with bright, indirect light. It loves plenty of light, but it's important to avoid direct sunlight as it can burn the leaves.

Keep the soil consistently moist by watering weekly, but avoid watering the roots. Let the top layer of soil dry between waterings to prevent root rot.

The Alocasia Cucullata thrives in a high humidity environment. Regularly misting the leaves or using a humidifier will increase humidity and keep the Alocasia content.
