Baby Alocasia Black Velvet, also known as the Jewel Alocasia, owes its name to its dark-toned velvety leaves which are detailed with stunning white veins that seem to glow with an inner light. Just like other Alocasias she needs a little bit of love to keep her shining, but with your love she will quickly grow into a beautiful living room plant.

The baby Alocasia Black Velvet prefers to avoid getting too wet, so while she appreciates a little water given often, take sure that the soil does not get too wet, as her roots may rot. When brown edges appear on her leaves, it’s time to repot her. This little baby likes a bright spot but not direct sunshine. And beware- if you water her too much she will produce small drops of moisture from her leaves which can stain wooden floors or tables.
I love this plant!! Living in a tiny studio it's awesome to be able to have this plant in a small size!!
Very healthy and beautiful. Can't wait for it to grow :)
Wonderful! it is adapting to the new house and one baby leaf is coming!
La planta llegó a España en perfectas condiciones y en menos de una semana; repetiré seguro.
The plant arrived with 2 leaves, one as small as my thumb fingernail, which dies a week later. In the last month, one new leave started showing. I love the plant and I'm really happy with how is growing. However, the plant I got was much smaller than the one they put in the picture, which has 3 much bigger leaves.
I ordered two of them and both are a little bit smaller than on the picture but the leaves are still beautiful and i can't wait to see it grow!
Arrived with 2 leaves and a stem with multiple very small leaves, they get bigger every day. I love my baby black velvet <3
Very healthy leaves but only has 2 of them and no growth point at the moment. I think it’s a bit risky to sell a plant with only two leaves and no growth point. It should have at least three or a growth point so if it suffers a bit after shipping it won’t lose all its leaves. Plant seems to be doing fine though and hasn’t lost a leaf after 5 days.
I'm so happy ! The two I ordered looked even better than on the picture, healthy and full of life. Looking at them makes me smile.
A lot smaller than on the picture, but arrived in perfect condition with two tiny healthy leafs, so I am very satisfied!
Arrived looking healthy, but a lot smaller than the picture. I have put it near a window though, and am hoping for it to perk up.
as picture, very cute little plant. Roots well established. Re potted to bigger pot on arrival.
Great plant, had three leaves when it arrived, now it has grown three big leaves since then!!
Loved it ! Arrived in a good condition
Arrived with two leaves, one wasn't so healthy but it didn't matter because there was a healthy one on the way. It arrived very quickly and I was happy with the order.
Voor de eerste keer bestelde ik planten online. Ik ben zeer enthousiast over de service en de aangekregen plantjes (Black Velvet Allocasia, Philodendron Prince of Orange en Jewel Orchid). Een dynamisch bedrijf waarbij ik in de toekomst waarschijnlijk nog zeldzame plantjes zal bestellen!
Arrived extremely tiny and only with 2 leaves - this would not be an issue on its own, but one of the leaves are odd, brown-ish/red-ish colour and I do not think it will survive. Anyways, put it under the grow light and hoping for the best.
Great plants! Arrived to the UK within 3 days and were very well packaged and healthy.
I ordered two plants two weeks ago, they came healthy, they had one leave each. one plant already has two leaves now and the other plant is also forming a new one at the moment. no damage when it arrived
I've ordered 3 of these since discovering onlinebabyplants (now PLNTS). The first one, sadly, died from severe root and rhizome rot weeks after getting it. It was a shame as the plant was beautiful with multiple large leaves (large for a baby plant). I was given a refund for this. I've ordered again and it arrived with two leaves, but one was one it's way out (normal for Alocasia) but it looks to be making a new one. I ordered a third since I was hoping to get one with a few more leaves. This one I received had two tiny leaves with one incoming, which is decent I suppose! Will be checking to make sure the roots are okay and then planting it together with the first to create the illusion of a fuller plant.
