Black Velvet Alocasia - (Alocasia reginula)

The Alocasia Black Velvet is considered one of the 'jewel Alocasias' that are much desired to be added to a collection. 

Black Velvet alocasia is one of several species of alocasias native in Southeast Asia, with this plant probably coming from the jungles of Borneo. It and its kin were collected during the 1860s by English plant collectors who scoured the jungles of the world looking for new orchids and houseplants.*

Transplant the plant about once a year, but keep the pot size as small as possible. It’s not a heavy feeder so avoid the temptation of trying to force it to grow fast by extra fertilization. Like most members of the philodendron family, never let the plant sit in standing water.*
