Black Velvet Alocasia
Latin: Alocasia reginula
Check out the stunning Black Velvet Alocasia! This regal beauty makes a dramatic addition to your indoor space with dark, lush leaves and contrasting platinum veins.
Black Velvet alocasia has moved from the obscurity of the plant collector to mainstream status because of the alchemy of the plant tissue culture specialists. Tissue culture labs have learned how to propagate this species en mass, thus making liners available to greenhouse growers across the nation. Plants are now showing up in better nurseries plus some of the mass market outlets.
In the home, Black Velvet alocasia should be given bright conditions but not direct sun. A north or east-facing window is ideal but any location suitable for an African violet should work. The plant is somewhat slow growing, so acquire as large a plant as possible.
Transplant the plant about once a year, but keep the pot size as small as possible. It’s not a heavy feeder so avoid the temptation of trying to force it to grow fast by extra fertilization. Like most members of the philodendron family, never let the plant sit in standing water.
