Alocasia 'Black Velvet'
Alocasia reginula

Gerard's leaves are so soft, they're basically velvet. The only chemical romance you'll find here is when you whip out the fertilizer. He's a plant fit for The Black Parade, so grab your eyeliner and get ready for the listening party your plants didn't know they deserved.

Bright indirect light.

SM: ~10" tall and a 4" pot.

Great plant child

Gerard is a great plant baby. I have many plants but very little indoor plants, so Gerard is a unique piece and plant learning child too. He is thriving and hopefully I can keep it that way. He seems to be enjoying his space with his siblings

Sad but still alive

I ordered one through Amazon on March 2 sold by Rooted and the poor thing got STUCK in shipping for 2 weeks..which had me fearfull. This was my second attempt at this specific type of Alocasia.. when he arrived he was not in the best shape (see ifrst picture) and Rooted immediately corrected the situation. Since then he is now down to 1 leaf that had a small brown spot...that turned into a huge spot.. BUT he has been trying to push out new growth. I am really hopeful he will continue to rebound and be very happy.

*the shipping issue i do not believe was any fault of Rooted*
