Alocasia “Black Velvet” is a very beautiful dwarf Alocasia with soft, heart-shaped leaves.
POSITION The plant must be in a light place, but not in full sun. Sunlight can damage the leaves. Is the plant too much in the dark or in the shade, the leaves will look for the light and the plant will stands a bit askew. Alocasia 'Black Velvet' should be regularly rotated so that the plant will grow straight.
WATER It loves humidity and prefers moist, well drained soils. It is right at home with ferns and other shade loving plants.
Water well during the hotter months and keep drier in winter.
