The Alocasia cucullata is a real jungle plant with fresh green leaves. This plant can grow up to 4 meters! When the plant is still small, the leaves are raised, but as the plant grows older, the leaves will start to hang down more. When a new leaf is formed, an old leaf is often shed. 
Best space & place
The little leaves can't deal with direct sun, so while it likes a good amount of bright light, make sure it is indirect, i.e. set back from a window. 
When to water & feed
Keep the soil constantly moist but not soggy. 
Need to know
