Alocasia 'Black Velvet' has a dark leaf colour with a velvet texture giving it its common name. You can expect a more compact grower in comparison to other alocasia with colour that is sure to add pop to any room.
Your Alocasia may go through a dormant period when light levels and temperatures are reduced in the winter months. During dormancy, keep your Alocasia in a warmer spot in your home and reduce the watering but do not allow it to completely dry out. You will see it perk up again in the spring.
Alocasias are mildly toxic to pets and humans. Contact a medical professional for assistance if you suspect poisoning.
Alocasia ‘Black Velvet’
Lighting: Your Alocasia will thrive in bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as this will cause the leaves to burn. It is also important to avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.
Watering: Your alocasia loves humidity and prefers regular watering and keeping the soil moist but not soggy. This is not a drought-tolerant plant, but it is relatively forgiving if you forget to water.
