The upper leaf surface of Alocasia plumbae 'Nigra' is deep black-purple and underneath it is a silver-purple with purple veins. The petiole, peduncle and the tube of the spathe are purple. 'Nigra' or plumbae as we generally refer to it make an excellent container Alocasia. The dark foliage of this elephant ear makes for an incredibly rich look.
