This plant is currently out of stock.

Alocasia Antoro Velvet is an extremely unique tropical plant with dark/black foliage.  The leaves are pointed and covered with small hairs and have a velvet texture.

Alocasia Antoro Velvet can produce leaves up to 2' in length but as an indoor plant it will stay a bit more compact.

Caring for your Alocasia Antoro Velvet is fairly simple but does require some attention.  Allow your plant to dry out about halfway between watering, taking care not to allow it to sit in excess water.  Due to their darker leaves, this species can tolerate lower light but they prefer bright indirect light.

Additional information:

Alocasia is a genus of plants in the Aroid family native to many parts of Asia including but not limited to Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Australia.

There are at least 90 officially recognized Alocasia species, with more discovered and properly named every year. Alocasia come in all sizes, from small to large. Jewel types like Black Velvet tend to stay on the bushier, more compact side.

Alocasia are rhizomatous or tuberous and self reproduce from corms.

Alocasia can go dormant during the cooler months, so try to provide your plant with temperatures above 50deg to ensure that they stay happy and healthy during this period.

Beautiful plant

Possibly one of my favorite alocasias. I’ve bought a number of mine from Canopy but this one tops them all! Love the unique velvet “hairy” leaves. Shipped with the utmost care and arrived looking perfect! Thank you for always being consistent! I love this company!

Arrived well-packaged without damage. The dark, velvety leaves are absolutely stunning, with a new leaf about to emerge!
