Alocasia Micholitziana 'Frydek', also known as the 'Green Velvet', is a captivating houseplant originating from the Philippines. This exotic beauty flaunts heart-shaped leaves that are a stunning deep emerald green, with striking white veins that create a marvellous contrast. Its velvet-like texture adds to its overall charm and makes it a perfect choice for indoor decoration. The leaves can grow up to a foot long, providing an impressive show of lush greenery. In terms of height and width, 'Frydek' usually reaches about 2 feet, although under optimal conditions, it can grow even larger. It doesn't produce offsets like some plants, but its size and vibrancy are more than enough to create a dramatic impact in any space. This plant thrives in containers where it can elegantly sprawl, creating an eye-catching display. The 'Frydek' is not a fast grower, but it's well worth the wait. When given the proper care and environment, it can develop a sturdy stem, which functions like a trunk, providing a strong base for the lush, oversized leaves. This robust "trunk" creates a unique aesthetic that gives the impression of a miniature tree. But the real show-stopper comes when the Alocasia Micholitziana 'Frydek' blooms. Expect to see delicate, hood-shaped flowers, typically in the warmer months. These flowers are a pale green with a white spadix, adding a touch of elegance to the plant's already remarkable foliage. The 'Frydek' does not follow the typical day-night blooming cycle of some plants. Instead, its flowers remain open, providing a constant display of its elegant blooms. However, these plants are known more for their beautiful leaves than their flowers. The Alocasia Micholitziana 'Frydek' is truly a sight to behold. With its vibrant, contrasting colours and unique texture, it's a plant that promises to turn heads and transform your indoor space into a tropical paradise. Just like the sunrise, this 'Green Velvet' is a daily reminder of the beauty and diversity found in nature.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
