Care Tips for Alocasia Black Velvet
Light: Bright, indirect light. Approximately 650-850 foot candles. Plants can take higher light levels as they mature.
Water: The soil should be allowed to dry slightly between watering. On a scale of 1-5 moisture levels should remain as close to a 3 as possible.
Humidity: Medium to high. Keep above 40%, with 70-80% humidity being ideal. If you live in an area with low humidity, add a humidity tray or mist several times a week.
Temperature: Plants grow best in temperatures from 70°-85° Fahrenheit range. During the cooler months when the temperatures fall below 65° the plants will grow more slowly, and fertilization rates should be reduced.
Fertilizer: Use a dilution of 20-10-20 or 20-20-20 applied every other watering. Higher fertilizer levels may attract pests.
