Alocasia Black Velvet (Alocasia reginula) is a perfect houseplant and is also known as one of the “Jewel Alocasia.” This plant is destined to stay small, sweet, and classy throughout its life. Growing these arrow-shaped leaves plants in high humidity and warm environment is their happy place.
This velvety, dark-green foliage is an eye-catching plant and is a must-have in every plant collector’s house especially if you have it displayed in a beautiful pot. Alocasia Black Velvet is native to the tropical climate of Southeast Asia. It thrives in bright, indirect sunlight and a well-drained soil mix.
Allow the soil to dry before watering them, and make sure there is an excellent draining hole in the pot to prevent root rot. Fertilizing them during their growing season using a balanced liquid houseplant fertilizer will help them grow faster and healthier. Alocasia is toxic to humans and pets, so make sure not to mingle with them.
You can propagate them via seeds, offsets, and division.
