Scientific Name: Alocasia macrorrhiza ‘Black Stem’

Common Names: Black Stem Alocasia, Black Stemmed Elephant Ear

Overview: Dive into the world of botanical wonders with the Alocasia macrorrhiza ‘Black Stem’. This striking plant boasts enormous, arrow-shaped leaves that stand in dramatic contrast to its dark, almost-black stems, creating an unparalleled visual feast. Aptly named for its distinctive stem hue, this variety of Alocasia brings a touch of the tropics to any setting, be it a living room or a shaded patio. Beyond its beauty, ‘Black Stem’ is a symbol of resilience, thriving in indirect light and requiring moderate watering. As a statement piece, it commands attention and acts as a conversation starter. The Alocasia macrorrhiza ‘Black Stem’ is more than just a plant; it’s a living art piece that seamlessly fuses nature’s raw beauty with a tinge of mystique.

    My plant has two leaves that are dying. I need to know should I cut them off or let them fall off. I also have a new leaf forming. Does this plant need sun and how cold can it take. I have it in my sun room. Thank you very much…. Ken

    FedEx lost my plant . And after contacting FedEx I found out plant vine had alreadymade a claim. They were very responsive and helpful. And ensured me I’d be made whole no matter the out come . The plant showed up looking fine due to the great packing by plantvine. And on top of that they have a 30 day promise . Plantvine is amazing and I’ve already been back !

    Overall the plant is in good condition, it is currently losing a leaf which could be due to the shipping shock. I still have yet to inspect the roots to see their health, but I do love the plant.

  8. Nicholas S. (verified owner)

    Half the leaves were damaged in transport, but the undamaged leaves are beautiful, and I’m excited for this little guy to get big and full over time.
