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 soil 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.
Way more stunning in person. The leaves are just so perfect!
Beautiful healthy plant, packaged with care. Shipped quickly with tracking which is critical when getting plant mail. Highly recommend & will purchase again from Gabriella plants.
I’m so glad I bought two! So pretty!
LOVE the deep velvety green. It will be a wonderful addition to my office jungle (most of which has been purchased from GP!) Gabriella Plants has delivered yet another happy, healthy plant. :)
Wow... I’m a big fan of Gabriella Plants after receiving 6 perfect plants!!!
Came in great condition and a new leaf is already coming out
Beautiful and healthy plant! It was packed really well and arrived with no stress/damages.
She’s a beauty! Arrived quickly and in perfect condition.
It was tiny. I expected more leaves but there’s only 2
Super full and beautiful leaves.
I absolutely love it!! Arrived in healthy condition. It’s such a beautiful plant.
Bueatiful healthy plant!
Its so dark and beautiful! I had anthurium fever and this was the more affordable cousin for me it did not disappoint!
It arrived in perfect condition. I was pleasantly surprised since it was my first online order.
This Black Velvet Alocasia is BEAUTIFUL! I've purchased from many online sellers and the packaging here far exceeded my expectations. Very minimal soil loss, there was no damage to the plant or pot and shipping was fast. I just received her 5 days ago and she's already pushing out a new leaf! Thank you! I will definitely be ordering again.
Glad I ordered 2. One had half dead leaves, the other looks great. Such is the gamble of shipping plants though. Overall all I'm happy and would order again but probably not until spring when it warms up.
This is a STUNNING plant! This is my 3rd plant I have purchased from this nursery and I cannot say enough good things. By far, my favorite and most consistent online shopping experience for plants.
I've coveted this plant for so long and mine is so cute! It has several leaves and a new one unfurling. It came in perfect condition and I can't wait until it's acclimated and I can start helping it grow!
Yet another stunner I’m so glad I ordered from them it was on sale too!
This was my second purchase from Gabriela’s and neither time has disappointed. The plants arrive beautifully and so carefully packaged. Even in winter they have made it from Florida to Alaska without a single flaw!
Check out these velvety leaves!
Yes, the underneath of the black velvet is just that amazing! It’s a dark and absolutely lovely plant, top and bottom.

Looking good now. But this one also arrived a little squished up.
Cute and beautiful plant. Absolutely love it.
Beautiful black velvet alocasia! All the plants I buy from Gabriella Plants come very healthy and very well packaged. I am always pleased with my purchases!
I love this plant it shipped with several other plants and they were in very good condition.
My plant arrived quickly in perfect condition and a new leaf is already on the way! Gabriella’s always nails it. Thanks!
This plant is beautiful! Lost a leaf couple days after receiving, no biggie. I have yet to be disappointed in plants or packaging.
Love it! Came well packaged, healthy and worth the price!
Absolutely beautiful, healthy plant !!!
Love the velvet leaves!!
BEAUTIFUL! A little hard water stain in this pic, when I first unboxed, but a gentle mist got her all cleaned up. She is proudly and happily sitting on my desk now, cant wait for the new leaves to unfurl!
Well packaged & healthy! After only having for a week there already a new leaf baby waiting to pop out!
I missed the Black Velvet 2 weeks ago, but I snagged it last week, and I was not let down! The quality of this baby is A++. Fan for life!
SO happy with this plant. I've been wanting a black velvet for awhile and finally was able to get one :) Shipping was surprisingly fast given I'm in CA and plant arrived in perfect condition with a new leaf I got to watch unfold. This was my first purchase through Gabriella plants and I couldn't be happier with the quality of the plant and shipping time and condition. I'll definitely be back. Thank you!!
Can’t wait to watch this one grow!
The velvety leaves on this one make it a joy to add to my plant collection. It arrived quickly and in stellar condition. Thank you!
I was a little worried about this order because even though Gabriella plants shipped this on time, the post office let it sit . One of the leaves took a bit of a hit but the other three are beautiful!
Really nice plant with new leaf sprouting.
So so beautiful. I was surprised at how big these plants were for the pot size and it came perfectly shipped. Would recommend ordering from here!!!
This little guy was delivered healthy and beautiful. I expect nothing less from Gabriella Plants!
There was a bit of loose dirt, but the plant was immaculate straight out of the box! I've only had it for a few days, but a new leaf is already on the way.
Arrived in perfect condition as always! I expected nothing less from Gabriella’s :)
I’ve been wanting this plant for a while. It’s beautiful and came packed very well! I’ll definitely be back for more!

Exceptionally happy with the quality of the plant and care taken when packaged. My plants arrived with new leaves unfurling and no damage. Will most def. but from Gabriella’s again soon!
I ordered this plant not really expecting much, but man was I wowed! It’s a beaut Clark! One of my favorite plants now. It came packaged well and healthy looking, and is happy and growing. :)
was in transit a whole week and still got here just a little tired. leaves will perk back up, only had been unwrapped a few hours. such a cute plant!
I'm obsessed. I'm continuously impressed by their packaging, plant health and customer service. Great company!
Absolutely love my Black Velvet Alocasia!!! I already have a new leaf growing. It arrived fresh and healthy. I will definitely be purchasing more plants. Thank you!!!
Super cute alocasia with velvety, dark leaves. I know this is silly but I actually love the teal nursery pot that it’s in. It brings out some bluish tones from the plant and looks fine without a cachepot. The largest leaf was pretty bent from shipping but it didn’t crack and recovered well after 3 days! It looks good as new! Thank you Shane!
She arrived beautifully packaged and in fabulous condition . . . Thank you!
new leaf opened 4 days after i got it!! so excited for this beautiful baby
Plants arrived wonderfully protected and neatly packed. The plant itself is very full and lively, looks very much like the photos posted on the website. I've ordered numerous plants from Gabriella's and couldn't recommend enough!
I love this plant, its truly like velvet.
Its came happy and healthy. Its growing wonderfully and I love it!!
Thanks to Gabriella Plants I now have a full on Alocasia addiction. These are significantly more beautiful in person!
Another great order! Shipped well and quick. Already had a new leaf unfurl.
This plant is beautiful. It’s the most expensive plant I’ve ever bought and I have no complaints. It arrived in perfect condition. This was my first order from Gabriella plants and I’m very pleased.
So happy with this purchase!!
My first and definitely not my last purchase from Gabriella! My new plant friend is perfect and arrived packed safe and snug. No pests and awesome root and foliage growth as expected for pot size purchased.
Beautiful alocasia! Didn't receive any damage in shipping.
We'll keep you updated.
