The plant Alocasia Reginula Black velvet, also known as “The Little Queen”, was first collected in the 1860s by curious Englishmen who were wandering, looking for special, interesting plants, in the jungles of Borneo, Southeast Asia. It is one of the several species of native Alocasias.
Alocasia Black velvet’s care involves an average amount of water along with dry, well-drained soil. It is advised to wait for the soil to dry before watering it again. The types of soil most commonly used for this plant are loam and sand.
Sunlight requirements are minimal when it comes to Alocasia black velvet’s indoor care. It can be kept under bright lights but should not be put under direct sunlight. It grows particularly well under full or partial shade. The plant is cold-sensitive as well, so it is suggested keeping it in less than 15 to 30 degrees Celsius in a protected spot without any exposure to wind.
Speaking of humidity, the little queen prefers a highly humid environment. It is also a fairly hungry plant and needs to be fertilized very often.
When thinking about repotting, don’t rush. It likes to be slightly pot-bound. Re-pot it after one or two years.
