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.

Light: Alocasia prefers moderate indirect light for best color and growth. We recommend keeping Alocasia out of the bright direct sun, which can burn the foliage.

Water: Overwatering is a special danger to Alocasia because if the rhizome rots, the plant may not recover. It is very important to make sure that the top few inches of soil are dry in between waterings to prevent overwatering. Underwatering may result in a slightly wilted appearance, but the plant should recover quickly once watered.
