The Alocasia ‘Black Velvet’ (Alocasia reginula) is a popular miniature jewel alocasia with characteristic dark foliage and a compact growth habit. Named for both its regal appearance and black velvety leaves, which are contrasted beautifully by the piercing white venation. Truly, a real dark gem of a plant.
Alocasia Black Velvet prefers indirect, bright light. Like other Alocasia, the Black Velvet will appreciate a moderate watering schedule. While we don’t recommend a set amount or number of days to water, you’ll instead check the soil for moisture retention.
