How to Care for an Alocasia Black Velvet
Light: Alocasia Black Velvet thrive in medium to bright, indirect sunlight. Be aware that they are not suited to low light or direct sunlight - which may scorch their leaves.
Water: Alocasia Black Velvet enjoy weekly watering sessions and frequent misting, keeping their soil moist but not wet. In winter, we recommend allowing the top 2 inches of soil to dry out between waterings to prevent overwatering and root rot. This plant is not drought tolerant, and extended periods of dryness will cause leaf edges to brown.
Humidity: Your Alocasia Black Velvet will also appreciate being placed in a humid environment, which you can create by misting it frequently, placing it close to other plants or on a pebble tray partly filled with water. Temperature: Your Alocasia Black Velvet will thrive in temperatures ranging from 18-25ºC. Avoid abrupt temperature changes and cold drafts.
