Dramatic Color and Velvet-Soft Texture

Why Alocasia Black Velvet?

If you’re looking for a wholly unique house plant, the Alocasia ‘Black Velvet’ fits the bill. With leaves that look like crushed black velvet, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything else like it! 

The Alocasia ‘Black Velvet’ earns its name from its deep, dramatic color and the tiny hairs that grow on its leaves, giving it the soft look of velvet. The foliage is a deep green-black hue with purple undersides, and each leaf is streaked with prominent white veins. 

With a petite size and a big impact, the Alocasia ‘Black Velvet’ is an ideal container plant, perfect for adding interest and tropical vibes to countertops, sunny window ledges and more. And while it can be planted outdoors in warmer climates, this native of Southeastern Asia and India typically performs best inside.

Wherever you keep it, your Alocasia will prefer indirect, bright sunlight. It also likes moist, well-draining soil and humid conditions - you can mist it several times a week to mimic its native climate. The Alocasia can be toxic, so proceed with caution around pets and children.

Why FastGrowingTrees.com is Better

If you're looking to take your house plant collection to the next level, the Alocasia ‘Black Velvet’ packs a unique punch - and you won't find this at your local nurseries or big box stores. And the best part? The care your Alocasia receives in our nursery ensures it will thrive when it arrives at your door.

Add a little 'Black Velvet' to your life, and order an Alocasia for your collection today!

    Beautiful healthy plant, looks great it my living room!

    This plant is perfect in my living room and it’s a variety you don’t see at your typical garden center. It came very quickly after ordering and was packaged securely - the plant was in perfect condition when it arrived. I will definitely order again in the future!

    Small house plant leaf broken when box was opened

    I like my tree and my house plant, but the small house plant was in the bottom of the same box and on its side and one of the only two leaves on the plant was cut in half and broken.:( also, the plant was growing sideways in the pot. I had to remove it from the container to set it growing upright,and replant it in another container.
