The Alocasia Cucullata Variegata is a special plant that you don’t come across often! This houseplant stands out even more with its variegated leaves. This variety is slightly different from other Alocasias; the colours can vary from white, mint to light green. The heart-shaped leaves complete this plant!
Originally the Alocasia comes from the tropics of Southeast Asia. Here the Alocasia grows in the shade of other trees and large plants and the leaves can become huge. So big, that animals use the leaves to shelter under during heavy rain.
The Alocasia Cucullata Variegata can ‘gutter’, a process in which the plant secretes water droplets. Therefore, do not place this houseplant on a wooden floor. The elephant ear prefers a light spot with a lot of indirect sunlight. He also likes warmth, but be careful with a place close to the radiator. The Alocasia likes a moist soil, but absolutely not with its roots in a layer of water. So give a small amount of water regularly, instead of large amounts at once. In addition, you make this plant very happy with a higher humidity. By placing a bowl of water next to the plants, you ensure that you increase the humidity.
