This Beautifull Alocasia Calcutta is also known as Buddha's hand as the belief is it can bring you good fortune. The impressive green pointed leaves and long tall stem make this plant really stand out and would make a statement in your home!
The popular Alocasia is a common houseplant, with the Calcutta providing a much more compact version with a slow rate of growth, making it perfect for when space is an issue. Add in the benefit of being an air-purifying plant that is relatively easy to care for, and you can easily see why Alocasias are featured in so many homes.
This plant enjoys filtered or indirect light, as too much direct sun can fade the leaves. The soil also likes to be kept slightly moist, so watering little and often will help the Calcutta thrive.
