Why We Love It

A new, rare cultivar with striking, black stems as the name suggests.

  • Cultivar of Alocasia zebrina which is native to South-East Asia.
  • Leaves are large, arrow shaped and upward pointing. Leaf undersides are also veined in black. The black stems are actually deep red which can sometimes be seen on the sheaths.

Growth pattern: Tuberous, tall & upright

Water: Little and often. Keep moist but not waterlogged.

Ideal Position: South, east or north facing

Light: Medium to bright, indirect light.

Humidity disclaimer: This plant will grow well outside of a terrarium or cabinet. However, all tropical plants thrive with higher humidity levels. To achieve this we suggest grouping plants together, or putting them in a bathroom or kitchen which gets regular use.

We do our very best to provide accurate descriptions, images and size estimates for our plants but alas, plants are living things and change; click here for more info.

Planting and Care

Into a Pot

If you're planting into a pot or container, have a hand trowel and a watering tool ready, plus a container larger than the one your plant arrived in.

  1. Pour a small amount of soil at the bottom of your chosen container.
  2. Put the plant in place and then back-fill soil around the rootball.
  3. Lightly water after repotting. The soil should be just damp enough that if you press your forefinger into the soil it is moist above the top of your nail.
  4. Regularly check the soil is moist but not soaking or sitting in water.
  5. Make sure to place your plant away from any harsh drafts.
