Alocasia “Black Velvet” is a very beautiful dwarf version of the Alocasia.  It is a beautiful house plant because of its peculiar white veined leaves.  The Alocasia originates from Malaysia and Borneo.

The Alocasia is not demanding toward its spot but does not like direct sunlight. The Alocasia uses little water, but it is important that the soil remains moist and definitely does not dry out.  Do make sure there remains no water in the pot.

    Came smaller than on the photo but a cute plant. It has five leaves and more about to come. Two leaves have faint white over them, perhaps from unfiltered water, I am sure it is nothing harmful and is barely visible. Very happy alocasia!

    I‘ve got healthy and beautiful plant. It is a little bit small with only one big leaf and a second coming, but the shop gave me a spare one. Thank you.

    bien arrivé chez moi, 2 petites feuilles, 2 semaines plus tard tout va bien, un sol toujours un peu humide, je l’ai placée derrière une fenêtre ou il n’y a jamais de soleil direct

    Arrived today well packed…it only has one leaf though and one just opening..seems healthy enough though

    Plant arrived very well, took a few weeks to acclimate but then started to push out larger, rounder growth.

    We had a problem with the transport company and we saw that Baby Black Velvet arrived in bad conditions. On leaf was yellow at all and just have 1 leaf left right now hoping that it will survive. Even so, Emma has been aware of what happened and decided to refund us the money of this plant. We’re so delighted with the other plants and grateful for the friendliness of emma… Thanks!

    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.

    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

    Great plants! Arrived to the UK within 3 days and were very well packaged and healthy.

    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.

    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 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.

  14. Isa

    Great plant, had three leaves when it arrived, now it has grown three big leaves since then!!
