Alocasia Reginula
Regular price£14.00
/

The Alocasia Black Velvet is a great starter plant for an exotic plant collection as it’s not very demanding. It has a very deep green colour that gets almost black and its leaves are super hard with an almost velvety feel to it. They grow quite slowly and don’t take much space, each leaf tend to be bigger than the last and they can get quite big and lush!

CARE FOR YOUR PLANTS

LIGHT

Alocasias need plenty of bright light and can even tolerate a couple of hours of direct morning sun.

water

As with most Alocasias, this plant doesn’t like to be completely dry. Keep the soil moist, watering it when at least 2-3 inches of the soil is dry. Take special caution in Autumn/Winter as watering might need to reduce. They have to be sitting in water and can rot easily.

care tips

This plant doesn’t like cold rooms, keep it warm. It also needs a moist environment with above average humidity, imitating its natural tropical climate. A way of keeping the humidity high is to group several plants together or by sitting them on a tray of pebbles and water.

Make sure to clean all leaves with a dry cloth – dust can affect its absorption of light. You can feed your plant once a month during growing season with a slow release fertiliser. Alocasias can have a dormant period where leaves will die, so don’t be alarmed. During this time, make sure to reduce the watering, keeping the soil slightly moist.
