Alocasia 'Regal Shields' is the hybrid cross of Alocasia odora and Alocasia reginula aka "Black Velvet". Getting it's cold tolerance and larger stature from odora, and it's unique coloration and pleating from reginula, 'Regal Shields' is the perfect combination of both of these plants!
New crop! Great color & size.
General Alocasia Care Tips:
Light: Bright indirect light is preferred but they can also handle both lower amounts of light and some direct sun.
Water: This plant likes soil that is moist but not soggy. You can allow the top couple of inches of soul to dry out before watering again.
Other: These plants are tropical so they prefer warm, humid environments and may become dormant in the winter if they experience prolonged colder temperatures. You can increase your humidity with a humidifier, misting the plant, keeping it in your bathroom (so long as there is enough light), or by placing it on a pebble tray.
Beautiful plant and carefully packaged, I'm very happy.
Loved it! It arrived completely unharmed with stiff stems! Without a heat pack, it travelled very well during the wintertime.
The plant arrived out of the pot and a little banged up, but it’s a very healthy plant that perked up after being repotted with a drink.
I reached out to the company, and they asked me to let them know if it didn’t perk up, (very awesome of them) but the regal came through for us! Thanks GP team! Would purchase again :)
My plants arrived so perfectly!!! I am so amazed in the care and quality and pricing at Gabriella’s. This was my very first purchase from Gabriella’s but, won’t be the last.
Well what can I say I received another beautiful healthy plant from Gabriellas and there an ice storm when it arrived and because of the excellent packaging it was perfect!!!
The regal shield was packaged very well! 4 beautiful, fully intact HUGE leaves. The 4" black velvet next to it for scale. Regal shields was also somewhat root bound -- 3 or 4 larger roots at the bottom of the nursery pot. The leaf has an iridescent sheen to it and I cannot wait to see it grow. I would recommend buying from Gabriella's!
Much better in person than in pictures. I was on the fence about getting a regal shield, but now I’m happy I did. It has beautiful veining.
Beautiful! In amazing condition.
I’m in love with this plant. So healthy and full
I L-O-V-E this plant! She is regal indeed, healthy and arrived well packaged. I’m so happy with my choice, I bought another
Beautiful dark leaves.
I bought this my sister she loved it, well taken care plants Thank you
I’m soo in love with this beauty! This company never disappoints. This Is the first plant I received in the mail that came with a new leaf that didn’t end up dying off. I don’t know how they do it but they are the absolute best at growing and shipping Plants. can’t wait for my next order!
Arrived in perfect condition! Gorgeous plant!
I am totally in love! She’s perfect!

BEST PACKAGING AND QUICK SHIPPING. QUALITY PLANTS. WOULD RECOMMEND!
Amazing experience! Shipped so nicely, arrived in perfect condition from Florida to California - not to mention, during the summer heat! Definitely will be ordering plants from them again!
They are perfect! Regal has popped a new baby.
I was so worried because it got stuck in the mail for a few extra days, but when it finally arrived, it was in PERFECT condition. I was actually shocked, the plant felt firm and so healthy. I can’t wait for it to get big!
Arrived well packaged and larger than expected! One small bottom leaf was yellow so I snipped it off and the other bottom one looks droopy but other than that It’s perfect!
The packaging was amazing , The roots look very healthy and had even a new growth on it.
Received the plant in a great condition!
Love, love my alocasia regal shield. It was a little rough from shipping but bounced back after watering it.
Plant arrived in fantastic health and has already put out new leaf. Thank you Gabriella Plants!
Gabriella’s is amazing. My regal shield came in perfect condition and is thriving here at my home.
I love this Silver Sword! Beautiful color and fantastic Condition! Quick shipping and packaged impeccably!
As the temperatures soared in to triple digits last week I started to regret ordering plants online. I ripped the box open expecting to be disappointed BUT they were perfect! Wrapped with care and not a single imperfection. Thank you and I look forward to ordering more soon.
Thank you Gabriella plants for another wonderful happy healthy plant. All your plants come out of the box looking like they didn’t even take a trip in the mail because of the wonderful packing and love and care you put into your plants! Also thank you for keeping your price’s fair! Looking forward to my next plant!
I ordered for the first time from Gabrielle plants not expecting much. But boy was I blown away! From the moment I placed my order the updates through email began. My order didn’t take long to ship. Once I received it, surprise! My plants were packaged so good. Carefully wrapped with love. They came freshly watered and look absolutely beautiful! I can’t stop staring at them! I can tell these babies are well cared for with the upmost love. And now they’re mine!! You have gained a forever customer! I’m already loading my cart for my next purchase! Thank you so much!
Arrived quickly. Packaged well, no damage from shipping
Packaged well. Strong and seems to be settling in well. Looks great outside. Love the Alocasia species.
So beautiful and arrived perfectly!
Packaged beautifully, minimal leaf crushing/damage. Only thing is it would be so wonderful if there were labels/initials on the individual plants, since I bought 3 similar plants, its been hard to ID which is which, especially as younger plants, since I got them. Just a reccomendation gorgeous plants, will definitely buy again!
Recommend plants, packing, customer service! All great
Super fast shipping and excellent packaging!
I took a chance on my first Alocasia. It is awesome. Shipping was good. I had a yellowing leaf which I lost.
I think he's good though. Beautiful addition.
Absolutely beautiful this is my new leaf it’s huge!
A real beauty, healthy plant, carefully packaged, great experience. Will order again. I ordered an alocasia frydek previously and both are doing great.
I saw this plant only one time before, and it was 4 feet tall!! I live in an apartment so that would certainly not work considering I have over thirty other plants. This is the perfect size Alocasia, and it has already put out two new huge leaves! They are bigger than my entire hand, and I am happily nurturing this baby till it grows into a big boy. He loves bright indirect sunlight and my grow lights. Make sure the soil is not wet and water thoroughly when it is a lil dry (one digit down)
Beautiful plant, packaging was exceptional! I’ll be back for more!
Good sized, new leaves coming up
The plant was packaged SO carefully and thoroughly. I am so thankful for the time and effort they put into this, because USPS does not follow instructions and they jostle the package and place it with the package on the wrong side up.
The plant is also gorgeous!!!
She came with a baby leaf which has already opened while in my house. The color of this foliage is just amazing. Pictures can’t do it justice.
Very nice plant with beautiful dark purple and satin like leaves that have light green veins. Arrived in perfect condition, packaged well. I am very happy with my purchase.
BEAUTIFUL. LOVE IT
Beautiful plant. Think it only will lose one leaf. Propping it up and hoping for the best. My first rarer alocasia. Pray for her safety!
As always a great experience!
Thank you Gabriella Plants and team once again for the amaxing plants you sell and their quality is superb!
It is in great shape and very healthy. It came with 3 full leaves and within a couple days, the 4th one opened. I'm very happy with it.
Absolutely beautiful very happy with can’t wait for it to get much larger
My Alocasia regal shields came out of the packaging looking healthy and gorgeous, with slightly moist soil and good insulation. Everything was neat and clean and protected. Even the larger leaves were barely affected! Beautiful plant and wonderful job shipping.
Every plant I’ve gotten from Grabriella has been perfect! Never even a torn leaf! The care they take packing is so appreciated and they are the first place I go looking for a certain plant!
Arrived faster than I expected, great packaging!!! Beautiful Plants arrived in amazing and fresh condition.
Will definitely order again!
This plant is stunning! High quality and worth every cent! And your top notch packaging is so very much appreciated! I look forward to my next order!
Absolutely stunning! This plant was perfectly packed and arrived looking like this right out of the box. I’m so pleased with my purchase.
She’s so proud and pretty, this Alocasia Regal Shields. She’s healthy and robust!! Arrived well-packed and awesome!!
My plant came well packed. Not one damaged leaf and the soil was still moist. The plant itself is beautiful. I can't wait to see it grow. Shane is a great communicator too. I knew exactly when my plant shipped.
Arrived perfectly wrapped with no damage to any of the leafs. Larger than expected. Will definitely order from them again.
Will definitely buy again
