Photographs are representative of the species and not always of the specific plant shipped. Normal variations in size, pruning and leaf structure may occur.

Sun: Indirect

Light: Medium - Bright

Ensure the Alocasia Black Velvet receives sufficient filtered light, mimicking its natural habitat in the forest understory.

Water: When half dry

Keep the soil around the Alocasia Black Velvet consistently moist but not waterlogged, allowing the top inch to dry out between waterings.

Humidity: High

Maintain high humidity levels around the Alocasia Black Velvet, ideally between 60-80%, to prevent leaf drying and browning.

You can feel comfortable having Air Plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.

Pro Tip

To ensure your air plants thrive, give them a weekly soak in room temperature water for about 20-30 minutes. After soaking, gently shake off excess water and allow them to dry completely before placing them back in their display.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!

PRO TIPS

To prevent both under-watering and overwatering, use a well-draining potting mix and allow excess water to escape. Always check the soil moisture before adding more water to keep your plants thriving.
