Alocasia form part of the Araceae family and are lush foliage plants found throughout the Tropics, from Asia to Australia, so they require warmth and humidity to perform best.

Alocasia Cucullata have heart shaped leaves upon long, slender stems and are known commonly as 'Buddha's Palm' and thought to bring good luck!  Its compact size relative to most Alocasia make it a popular and practical houseplant choice.

In terms of light, Alocasia should be kept from full sun, preferring medium to bright indirect light to light shade. Keep the soil moist but not soggy - it's a good idea to let the top of the soil dry slightly before watering again as underground rhizomes can rot if conditions in the soil are too wet and cool. Keep away from cold drafts.
