Plant Information and Advice

 

  • Common names: Alocasia Hooded Dwarf & Jewel Alocasia
  • Scientific name: Alocasia cucullata & Alocasia bambino

 

  • Description: a plant with rich green, heart-shaped leaves with prominent veins and long, green stalks, which can reach heights of 90cm tall. This plant is naturally found growing on dappled forest floors in tropical regions of South-East Asia and prefers to live in moist, humid conditions with bright indirect light. This plant would make a great addition to a rainforest set up used for millipedes, beetles, centipedes, mantids, tarantulas and even amphibians! This plant is relatively low maintenance and will thrive if conditions are right. We do want to mention that some species will nibble on the leaves and roots if planted directly into the tank’s substrate, so bare that in mind when choosing what plant species to use.

 

  • Place of origin: South-East Asia
  • Type: perennial, ground cover
  • Habitat: tropical
  • Humidity: 60% or more
  • Lighting: bright, indirect light
  • Temperature: 18-26˚C
  • Watering: keep soil constantly moist, not soggy
  • Soil: moist, well-draining soil
  • Growth rate: medium

 

Descriptions for both plants combined as they have very similar requirements.

  • All our orders are sent out using recyclable materials and reused boxes and packaging, plus we try to avoid single use plastics if we can.​​

 

  • A different delivery service such as Yodel is only used if the parcel dimensions happen to exceed the Royal Mail limits for that size bracket (eg awkward size/shape hardscape branches).

 

  • Royal Mail Tracked 24 is what we've used most frequently for orders including live inverts and 9 times out of 10 will deliver the day after dispatch. First Class and Signed for First Class are sometimes used and 1pm Next-day Special Delivery is an option at checkout if you want a guaranteed arrival.

 

  • We almost always choose a postage option which should deliver in 1 or 2 days, especially if the order includes live inverts or plants to ensure they arrive as fast as possible to avoid stressing anything too much, protecting the critters' welfare as well as protecting your purchase.
