Alocasia reginula - Black Velvet - Elephant Ear
If you don't have a lot of space to work with, the striking Black Velvet is a great choice. With its tiny, compact size, you can grow Black Velvets anywhere. The name is not a misnomer or exaggeration; wait until you feel the soft, velvety leaves for yourself. If your plant doesn't look just like the picture, give it a little time to grow up. Elephant Ears' attributes become even more defined when they mature.
Average mature height: 1-2 feet
Light: Full sun to part shade
Soil: Well-drained, moderately dry (drier at night)
