I was thrilled to find this Black Velvet as I had originally bought one as my very first alocasia before I knew NOTHING about them and promptly killed it despite my best efforts. I waited a year to try again and when I saw this one I knew it was time. Happy to report she is doing great and has already put out 2 new leaves!!! Great plant, very healthy.

I LOVE my Alocasia Black Velvet

First off I ordered this plant a little skeptical it would arrive with all its leaves just due to the size they are but I am so glad I ordered it! It came in packaged perfectly with no damage and perfectly healthy. Thank you so much! Never disappointed
