A repeat of my post from the past:

Alocasia Black Velvet likes low light and high humidity (considering
Wilbert's posting about thriving in dry conditions: you were lucky it did
not get spider mites). Mine languished in my San Jose, California
greenhouse (50% shade cloth on walls, 70% on ceiling) until I put it into
the dead/disappointing plant recycling area (under the table).  It
resprouted multiple levaes (after having flowered).  I got it back on the
table, and it went back into stupor.
