Variegated Alocasia Cucullata is a beautiful houseplant that is known for its large, glossy, heart-shaped leaves with variegated white and green patterns. Here are some care tips to help you keep your Variegated Alocasia Cucullata healthy and thriving:

  1. Light: Alocasia Cucullata prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate low light, but it may not grow as quickly or produce as many leaves. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry. Do not let the soil completely dry out between watering, but avoid overwatering as it can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Alocasia Cucullata loves high humidity. You can increase humidity by placing a humidifier near the plant or by placing a tray of water near the plant. You can also mist the leaves regularly to help increase humidity.

  4. Temperature: Alocasia Cucullata prefers warm temperatures between 65-85°F (18-29°C). Keep the plant away from drafts and cold windows.

  5. Fertilizer: You can fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer. Do not fertilize during the dormant season (fall and winter).

  6. Repotting: Alocasia Cucullata grows quickly and may need to be repotted every year or two. Use a well-draining soil mix and a pot that is one size larger than the current pot.

  7. Pruning: You can prune the plant to remove any damaged or yellowing leaves. This will also help promote new growth.

  8. Pests: Alocasia Cucullata can be prone to spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects. Inspect the plant regularly and treat any pests promptly with an appropriate insecticide.

Following these care tips will help your Variegated Alocasia Cucullata thrive and stay healthy.
