This plant has dark green leaves with striking silver veining, starting with baby plants is a great way to save on space and practice caring for Alocasia if you haven't before.
The Alocasia Reginula 'Black Velvet' will thrive in a humid space with lots of indirect light - be careful to not leave it in direct sun as it is sensitive to sunburn.
In the winter, Alocasia can go into hibernation, causing its leaves to die back - but don't worry! It will return bigger and healthier in Spring.
Light: Bright, indirect light will produce the best colouration on the leaves, however direct light will burn the leaves and cause brown, crispy tips.
Water: Keep the plant moist but not soaking, for best results a small amount of water often. For best results water from underneath with the use of a saucer to reduce the chance of root rot. Reduce watering during winter months.
Food: Feed once a month during growing season, if available a slow release food works best to not over power the soil.
Humidity: A high humidity is essential in maintaining this plant’s dramatic appearance. A decreased humidity will produce brown, crispy leaves and reduced growth.
Care tip: It is common for Alocasia to discard an old leaf after growing a new one. During the colder months your Alocasia could lose several of it's leaves or even go dormant - don't panic! It will grow back bigger and stronger in the Spring.
Great packaging, lots of care taken over lovely healthy plants! Excellent
