Description How to Grow Delivery

Create tropical tranquility in your home or office with this lush, elegant houseplant. Also known as Buddha’s hand, Alocasia cucullata is said to bring good luck, and is often planted outside Buddhist temples in its native ranges in Southeast Asia. This easy-to-grow Alocasia boasts glossy, deep green heart-shaped leaves, which are held on slender, graceful stems. Including an attractive ceramic pot, this calming exotic makes the perfect gift for a friend or yourself! Height: 90cm (36in). Spread: 45cm (18in).


1 x 14cm Potted Plant (50cm Tall) (KF0159)

Place your Alocasia in a bright spot with plenty of natural light but not in direct sunlight. This rainforest plant enjoys humidity, so a bathroom or kitchen windowsill is ideal. Avoid draughts and rotate occasionally to ensure even growth. Water regularly as the compost surface begins to dry out to keep moist but not saturated; allowing any excess to drain away. The plant will also enjoy being misted. Feed monthly during spring and summer with a balanced liquid houseplant feed. Reduce watering in winter, allowing the top of the compost to mostly dry out. Trim off faded leaves from the base.
