Alocasia 'Black Velvet'

rusty_blackhaw(6a)May 10, 2004

I have three of these that overwintered reasonably well but did not grow bigger indoors. I'd like to use them in a mixed border.

Is the max expected height of 20 inches what one can expect in pots indoors, or is that what plants will top out at in a sunny border given ample water and fertilizer?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

That is usually the max in ideal native habitat tropical conditions. But if you pour on the water and fertilizer and it's hot it will grow.
