Additional information

Weight 1 lbs

Alocasia ‘Black Velvet’ (Alocasia Reginula) is a popular houseplant native to Southeast Asia. It has beautiful dark, rough leaves with prominent white veins. Black velvet thrives in moist soil and bright, indirect light.

Exposing them to full sun will burn their foliage. Just like any other alocasia family, they are not drought-tolerant. Allow top soil to dry before watering again.

Fertilization during their growing season will help produce more healthy, bigger leaves. Alocasia black velvet is susceptible to root rot so be careful with your watering. This plant does not tolerate temperatures below 50 degrees F. so mimick the environment of this plant from where they’re native for them to thrive.

You’re responsible on checking the weather in your area before buying a plant. Too hot or too cold could kill the plant, please wait for a better weather condition if there’s a storm approaching or sudden weather change.

 

We want all our customers to be happy and satisfied with their purchase. If you have any problem with the purchase please let us know within 24 hours with a picture, before leaving a feedback. Please keep in mind that once the plant leaves our greenhouse, we have no control of the weather or how the mail carrier treats the package. It is important to acclimate the plant slowly when you receive it. The plant goes through a lot of stress being in transit for few days, and do not repot right away. Thank you and happy planting!

 

Please keep in mind that the plants are coming from California where it does not get too cold,

The unforgettable Black Velvet Alocasia (Alocasia reginula), or Little Queen, is exotic and elegant, with silver veins that shine against the broad leaf’s dark, velvety background. The plant isn’t demanding so much as it is particular.

 

Alocasia Black Velvet needs coarse, well-draining soil and careful watering to prevent soggy conditions. It prefers humidity of 60-75%, temperatures of 59-80ºF (15-27ºC), and moderate indirect light. Fertilize lightly every 4 weeks during the growing season and only repot infrequently.

 

The Black Velvet’s standout feature is dark leaves and prominent pale green, white, or silver veins. Its thick, succulent-like leaves are heart-shaped and have a velvety look and stiff texture. The leaves grow about six inches long and two-and-a-half inches wide
