Details About This Plant:

Fun Fact: In the pictures, the black velvets look soft and velvety, but if you actually get to touch one, you'll notice that the leaves are quite stiff and succulent-like.

The black velvets get their name from their black microscopic-furry foliage that developed as a light gathering strategy in their forest canopy days while their silvery pales veins actually reflects the light. Interesting right? Try flashing a light over the veins, you'll see the lights reflect, so cool!!!

That being said, the black velvets are not a fan of harsh direct light, because it naturally grows at the bottom of the forest, but that doesn't mean you can torture it in a closet! Give the plant medium to bright indirect light.

They looveeeee the humidity and likes to be kept dry in between watering. Some sources may say to keep the soil consistently moist, well if you do that the roots are gonna rot and yo plant will die. Don't do that. For this plant. Please.

Lastly, if you have fallen head over heels for the black velvets, which I'm not ashamed to admit, was my goal cough* cough*. You should pick up one below ;)
