Alocasia Black Velvet is a species of tropical plant native to Southeast Asia, known for its large, velvety leaves with a dark, almost black color.

With distinct, dark leaves coated in velvet, the Alocasia Black Velvet is a regal beauty appreciated for its signature soft leaves. Commonly known as a jewel or little queen alocasia, this indoor plant is compact which makes for a perfect desk or tabletop plant.

Plant care:

  • Bright, indirect light
  • Keep soil moist but not waterlogged
  • High humidity
  • Avoid cold drafts
  • Fertilize monthly during growing season

Note: Alocasia plants are sensitive to changes in their environment, and they prefer a consistent moisture level and temperature. Make sure to keep them away from direct sunlight, which can scorch their leaves, and allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings to prevent root rot.
