With its large leaves, the Alocasia Cucullata looks a lot like the other members of the Alocasia family. There are nevertheless a few differences, which makes this particular Alocasia ideal for certain places in your home. Firstly, this Alocasia Cucullata remains quite compact. Unlike the Elephant Ear (Alocasia Gageana), for example, this plant is perfect for smaller spots. Furthermore, the Cucullata distinguishes itself from its family because it does not drip. Where other Alocasias form drops at the tips (a process called “guttation”), this plant is therefore safe to put on the floor. Want to know more about guttation and other Alocasia information?

The “deep forest” pot included with the Alocasia Cucullata is of our own design. The warm colours combine beautifully with the deep green leaves.
Along with the delivery of this indoor plant you’ll naturally receive more plant care information, so you may enjoy it for as long as possible. Every plant has its own care preferences. And precisely because everything you need to know about this indoor plant is included, it’s also an ideal gift to send to someone else!
Keep the potting soil slightly humid and spray the leaves regularly.
Place the plant in a light spot, but not in direct sunlight.
Plants and health:
In order for your house to become a home – a place where you can truly unwind – we believe the addition of plants to be indispensable. Plants are much more than just a nice addition to your interior; they actively break down harmful substances and turn CO₂ into oxygen. Because we believe that everyone is entitled to a beautiful and healthy living environment, we are happy to share our green must-haves with you!
Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
