Alocasia 'Black Velvet'
Alocasia 'Black Velvet' is is definitely true to its name. With dark velvety leaves and veins it's a real show stopper for any collection. Typically as one leaf grows, one will drop. This is very common with Alocasia. They like bright to medium light, prefer to dry out in between waterings, and for their leaves to be misted regularly. Alocasia can sometimes struggle with pests like spider mites, so it's important to check the leaves and keep them moist. We grow Alocasia 'Black Velvet' in our Aroid soil mix.
