This plant is currently out of stock.

Alocasia infernalis is a highly sought after indoor tropical plant that is easy to care for.  These unique plants have dark black foliage.  If you enjoy black plants -- this is one to add to your collection!

Alocasia infernalis has a fairly compact growth habit and will only reach a height of about 2-4' inside of your home.

Caring for your Alocasia infernalis is somewhat simple, though they do need a little extra attention.  Make sure your plant is in a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter.  Allow your plant to dry out completely between watering, taking care to not allow it to sit in excess water.  This plant is very sensitive to over watering.  Provide your plant with low to medium 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.

Pretty Alocasia

This guy had some stress during shipping and lost some leaves but now it has settled in and has new growth coming in! Looking forward to watching it grow!

Really cool plant!

I saw the infernalis at a Nursery in Orlando. It was a tiny specimen in a 4” pot. It was $49!! The specimen I received from Canopy Plant came in a 6” pot and is 3X the size of the Nursery plant!! It was very well packaged, and the plant was in pristine condition and the shipping was speedy!. The price was much better as well. I am on my 3rd transaction with CP, and I will continue to do business with them
