About Black Velvets

Native to the tropical island of Borneo, this plant gets its name from the dark velvety-like leaves, that are offset but its silvery-white veins.

Unique Meaning & Symbolism

This plant stands for seizing opportunities when they arise, even when they’re risky.
Perfect for somebody who needs a little encouragement.

Caring For Black Velvets

Light: Medium sunlight

Can tolerate medium light, but the more it gets, the bigger its leaves will grow. However, avoid direct sunlight (especially near unitinted windows), to keep its leaves from scorching.

Water: About once a week

As with ferns, Alocasias like their soil to be kept moist (but never soggy). Water lightly and regularly to achieve this, ensuring water is never logged at the bottom of the pot.

The more light your plant gets, the more you'll need to water it. Similarly, the less light it gets, the less it will need.

Difficulty: Some care required
Needs some attention to ensure its soil is kept regularly moist; but master this and this plant becomes an easy and highly rewarding plant to care for.

Pets: Careful with pets
This plant may cause stomach irritation if ingested
