Alocasia 'Black Velvet'
Alocasia reginula, aka Black Velvet, is a petite plant that features striking silvery veins against a dark green leaf. For best results, provide a bright-indirect light, with your plant being as close to the light source as possible. Be sure not to have any leaves touching the window, as this can cause temperature problems and damage the leaves. Avoid direct sun as this can cause the leaves to curl.
Keep the soil evenly and lightly moist (but not soggy) except in the winter, when you should let the top 2 inches of soil dry out in between waterings. For optimal results, use a well-draining soil mix and pot into a terracotta planter. These plants also appreciate ample humidity, which you can provide with a pebble tray, a humidifier, or by clustering plants together.
Size: 4", 6" pot
