The Black Velvet Alocasia is a rare dwarf variety sought after because of its unique black colouring and velvet leaves.

Alocasia is an impressive-looking beauty with massive, fan-like leaves that give it the nickname ‘Elephant’s Ears’. Originally from the rainforests of South-East Asia, where its foliage acts as makeshift umbrellas in tropical downpours, Alocasia blew up as a house plant in the 1950s, and still has that nostalgic, vintage vibe.

A striking and beautiful houseplant, it is defined by its deep greenish-black leaves accentuated by whitish or light green veins. The leaves are roughly serrated, and in some cases, the leaf colour appears as an almost purple-green. Leaf shapes range from wide hearts to slim arrowheads, with a soft velvet-like texture.

Planting And Care


  • Natural indirect / artificial bright light is ideal for plant growth.


  • Soil should be well drain and porus.


  • Poke your finger/plain small stick into the soil to check the moisture.
  • Apply 1 cup (Approx. 50 ml) water when the top soil (3-4 inch) in pot feels dry to touch.
  • Apply water probably in the morning or evening time.
  • Do not overwater the plant.
  • As a rule of thumb, water the plant thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in winter and rainy season.

Application of Fertilizer

  • Before application of fertilizer loosen the topsoil without disturbing the roots of the plant so it can uptake the nutrients and moisture.
  • During the main growing season (January-March) feed the plant with organic fertilizer once a month.
  • Apply water immediately after application of fertilizer.

Plant Protection

  • Remove dead, infected or damaged plant parts and discard them away from the plants.
  • For any insect attack or disease, you can use Neem oil, Eucalyptus oil or Citrus oil spray for primary treatment.


  • Do not over water the plant especially when pot does not have drainage holes.
  • keep away from the AC Vents.
  • Do not apply water on plant leaves.
