The Alocasia 'Black Velvet' is a dark gem of a plant that adds a bit of drama to any space due to her almost black leaves. This little queen is destined to stay small, and classy throughout her life. She's easy to care for but has particular needs to ensure she stays happy. 

 

Light: She likes it just right. Light to medium indirect sunlight. Too little light and she’ll lose her luster but too much light and she’ll shed her leaves. Don’t put her in front of a window but don’t leave her in the dark. She still wants to see what’s going on; she’s not a total vampire.

Water: This girl loves a good drink. Think little but often. Her soil should be slightly damp but not soaked...that’s too much. She needs coarse, well-draining soil to thrive. Let her top 2 inches dry before watering.

Toxicity: She's for the sight not for friends, of both furry and humankind variety.

Repotting Needs: She’ll stay cozy for a while and does better when slightly rootbound. Avoid repotting more than once every 2-3 years. 

PRO TIP: if her leaves are curling- mist her lightly with distill water + put her in a brightly lit (indirect sun) room and she'll perk right back up. 

Please also note that each plant will look different based on growth. Some are smaller but will flourish in no time with proper care.

Has a hard time shipping

Beautiful plant! It does have a rough time with shipping, which is expected with this plant. It lost two whole leaves when it got here, a little water and sun, perked right up, then lost the largest leaf the day after. I am down to 4 leaves. Not bad, but not the shippers fault.

I was so excited to receive this plant! It lost one leaf if shipping, but if you have done any research on this plant you know that is to be expected. I’ve had it for a few days now and she is thriving with some bright indirect light.
