Alocasia cucullata

Alocasia cucullata is a radiant, tropical foliage plant, with a compact habit. This evergreen has glossy, bright green, heart-shaped leaves.

As a houseplant with shiny, large leaves on sturdy stems, Alocasia cucullata is a true eyecatcher. Alocasia cucullata is commonly known as Chinese Taro, Buddha’s hand or Elephant’s Ears. Other internationally used common names for Alocasia cucullata are: Chinese ape; Dwarf elephant’s ear; jian wei yu; boga kachu; mukhi-kochu; panchamukhi kochu.
