from 15.00

Beautiful dark leaves are the shining glory of Alocasia ‘Black Velvet.’ This smaller tropical elephant ear is adapted to the warm, moist areas of southern Asia.

This little beauty requires high humidity for good growth. Choose a location with partial to full shade and organic-rich, well-drained soil. It will tolerate moist soil conditions and should be planted in a protected spot as it is wind sensitive. Like all tropical Alocasia, it's cold sensitive. Where not hardy, ‘Black Velvet’ is ideal for containers for humid, shaded conservatories or patios. The plants spread to form dense clumps that should be thinned regularly.
