LIGHT
Bright indirect light is perfect for your Black Velvet. Direct light onto then leaves will burn them.

FERTILISING
Feed twice a month with houseplant fertiliser during the Spring and Summer months.

SOIL
Your Black Velvet will appreciate a well draining soil mix. Visit our Soil Bar for Perlite, Pumice and Orchard Bark to add to a standard houseplant mix.

TEMPERATURE
Alocasia like to be warm, keep them away from cold draughts and try not to let them sit below 18C.

HUMIDITY
All Alocasia love humidity and the Black Velvet is no exception. Use a humidifier or a pebble tray to achieve this. Grouping plants together also helps with increasing humidity.

TOXICITY
Alocasia are considered toxic to humans and animals.
