Alocasia Reginula (Black Velvet)
Alocasia Reginula is also known as Black Velvet and is probably one of our all time favourite plants. It has big, lush, beautiful, dark almost black leaves with contrasting silver veins. The leaves are velvet-like but are a little rough to touch. It's a relatively small Alocasia so won't out grow your indoor jungle. She is one of the few almost black plants in nature...and in your indoor jungle...strikes a regal presence.
- CARE GUIDE -
Light: Alocasia Reginula (Black Velvet)'s love bright filtered, indirect sunlight. She doesn't mind sitting under taller plants...receiving dappled light. She is a little bit delicate, but she is worth it.
Water: You should water your plant when the first couple of inches of soil are dry. Poke your finger in the soil to check its dryness. Water her thoroughly through and let it drain. You can let her dry out, before watering thoroughly again. Do not let soil stay water logged as this may cause root rot.
- GROW UP TO -
The plant you will receive will be close to the one in the picture. As living creatures, like us, they all grow differently, are individuals and slightly different. Which is excellent!
If you choose pot size 120mm the plant will be anywhere between 10-12cm centimetres in height.
When grown indoors and under the right conditions, Alocasia Black Velvets can grow up to 40cm in height.
Plants come in nursery growing pots. Decorative pots, plant is photographed in is not included in price. However, we are sourcing cool decorative pots and they will soon become available :)
