Alocasia cucullata is a husky, but compact elephant ear with thick, shiny green, heart-shaped leaves, each with curlicue, twisted tips and upturned leaf margins. Alocasia cucullata forms a sturdy, 3' tall x 3' wide clump with 7" wide x 1' long leaf blades at the end of the upright green petioles. The flower spathe is hooded (i.e., cucullate) with the whole flower structure hiding below the leaf. The robust growing Alocasia cucullata is just perfect where elephant ear form and texture is needed without the large size.
