Proud plant parent time! I found Lucky at a local grocery store of all places, and she was in really rough shape. A few months later and she’s starting to get rid of her old damaged leaves and has pushed out a full new leaf and is pushing out both a flower and a new leaf at the same time! Pictures of her adoption day versus today! #HappyPlants #BlackVelvetAlocasia #NewGrowth #Lucky #progress #variegatedplants #BeforeAndAfter

@sarahsalith Thank you!
πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ˜πŸ˜lookin good!!!
@MorePlants13 Thank you! I’m very excited!
Wow such an awesome find for sure
@Michelle5986 I completely agree, when I got her I didn’t even know what she was to be honest! I have the #GregGang to thank for her identification!
Such a beauty, and a great job done caring her.
@FieryMexico Thank you very much!
You found a variegated one at a GROCERY STORE???
@LoyalApplerose I did! Every one of her leaves, both old and new (so far) have had some form or another of variegation. She has both pink and a cream-white variegation, sometimes on the same leaf! I paid $10 for her because they thought she was as good as dead and they just wanted me to pay for the pot. That’s why her name is Lucky!
@sarahsalith that’s awesome!! Now I can compare your new growth to mine as I have one too! Mine looks like yours!!
@ExaltedCilantro That’s awesome! She’s quickly become one of my favorites, because she’s just so different from anything I’ve had before. (Mainly succulents and golden pothos.)
@ExaltedCilantro I’ve noticed her newer leaves are a bit darker than her old ones, I don’t know if it’s from age or from what she went through in the past though.
Love the success stories, and can't wait to see that flower!
Lucky is looking amazing 😻. Pls post pics when the flower blooms.
@UltraKoreanfir Thank you! It’s her first, so I’m excited too!
@FirstApplemint Thank you! I will be!
Wow what a mess she was. Great job rescuing her! πŸ†πŸͺ΄
