Alocasia Ninja is an Alocasia reginula 'Black Velvet' mutation with round, darker leaves and distinct white veining. This elephant ear variety will not grow much larger than 2-3' tall.
We can't seem to get enough of Alocasia Ninja, as their foliage is so mesmerizing!
This would be a great addition to any Alocasia or elephant ear collection, as these are fairly uncommon.
Alocasia prefer a well draining soil rich in organic matter. Allow your plant to dry out slightly between watering.
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.
This is THE most beautiful plant!!! I am so satisfied with this purchase I'm thinking about adding another Ninja to my collection!!! Highly recommend!!!
Arrived well packaged. Going through a bit of a transition but that is normal.
What a beautiful and happy little fella! I’m shocked at how perfect it arrived. Now if only I can take just as good care of it
Honestly, I have loved the quality, shipping, and customer service of all my purchases from Canopy. So, beyond that, I have to brag about how cute this lil guy is!
