Alocasia Reginula 'Black Velvet'

The Alocasia Reginula, known as 'Black Velvet', is a true gem among houseplants with its luxurious, dark foliage and a velvety texture that's irresistible to touch. This compact Alocasia variety is adored for its rich, almost black leaves and contrasting, silvery-white veins – a dramatic addition that elevates the aesthetic of any plant collection.

Sun Schedule: It flourishes in moderate to bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch its delicate leaves, to preserve the deep, velvety look.

Pet Friendly: It is important to be aware that 'Black Velvet' is not safe for pets. Its leaves contain insoluble oxalates that can be toxic if ingested, so it’s best kept away from curious pets.

Size: This dwarf Alocasia fits comfortably in a small to medium space, often housed in a 4" to 6" pot, and usually grows to about 12"-18" in height.

Care Intensity: 'Black Velvet' requires a moderate level of care. With a bit of extra attention, especially regarding humidity and watering, it can thrive and become a stunning showpiece.

Water Schedule: Keep the soil evenly moist but not soggy. Water it once the topsoil has dried out slightly, and ensure good drainage to avoid root rot.

Grower Tip: This plant loves high humidity, so consider placing it on a pebble tray or using a humidifier. Regular misting can also help, but avoid wetting the leaves directly to prevent fungal diseases.
