Medium Alocasia 'Black Velvet'
Commonly known as the Alocasia Reginula (which literally means "Little Queen"), this easy-to-care-for plant is considered a rare miniature jewel alocasia, part of the aroid family, and is native to Southeast Asia. With huge, heart-shaped black leaves, contrasting white veins, and characteristic velvety texture, this is one BOLD plant.
Being that it's from a tropical environment, it thrives in medium to bright indirect light, warm temperatures, high humidity, moderately moist soil and will grow up to 20 inches indoors. This makes them great to place on a desktop, bookcase, cubby, or small nook in your home that is well-lit but doesn't get direct light. If given enough love and light, it will bloom a flower! Over time this plant may drop some leaves, but don’t be alarmed, this is just a natural occurrence in the plant's life cycle as the alocasias are plants that prefer to have few, but huge leaves.
