Plant care

The Alocasia cucullata is an easy plant to cultivate. It thrives in a place with a lot of light but also in half shadow. If this plant is placed in direct sunlight the leaves will turn yellow. Keep the potting soil around this plant really moist: this species likes ‘wet feet’. As long as the plant is cultivated indoors the Alocasia cucullata makes few demands on the temperature [ 10°-30°Celsius / 50°- 86°F ]. If from time to time you add some liquid fertilizer the Alocasia cucullata will continue to grow. Araflora sells many different types of soil and also containers for this plant.
