How about these stunning and exotic Alocasia Cucullata! These rare plants are not often found at your local hardware stores and nurseries, making them a super unique addition to our collection.
Alocasia Cucullata are very different to other Alocasias. They are known as the "small elephant ear", growing only to about 1 metre high, and is very hardy compared to other Alocasia varieties.
The small leaves are heart shaped, with thick prominent veining on the underside, and each with curly, twisted tips and upturned leaf margins. The unusual leaves give it its common name of ‘Hooded Elephant Ear’ or even known as ‘Buddha’s Hand’.

HOW TO WATER
Fully submerge your kokedama in a bowl, sink or bucket. You may need to hold it under for a moment! Allow to soak for 10-15 minutes until kokedama feels heavy and full.
It is important to gently squeeze out excess water from the kokedama by pressing between two hands, on the sides towards the base. This will ensure your kokedama does not stay waterlogged which will prevent conditions such as root rot, fungus gnats and mould. As the moss and twine are natural products they are biodegradable and as such, squeezing out the excess water will prevent deterioration, prolonging the life of your kokedama.
