The coloration is usually dark green with contrasting lighter veins, giving the leaves an elegant and textured look.

Please Note: We try to photograph a good representation of the style, size and overall look of the plant category. Should there be specific variants (such as our Imperfect Plants) they will be marked as such. Each plant is unique in it's own way, so we cannot guarantee the exact number of leaf or stem counts.

 Common Problems Q&A
Yellowing Leaves
  • Overwatering: Alocasias prefer moist but well-draining soil. Overwatering can lead to root rot, causing yellowing leaves. Ensure the soil dries out slightly between waterings.
  • Underwatering: Alternatively, underwatering can also cause yellowing leaves. Check if the soil is dry and adjust your watering schedule accordingly.
Leaf Dropping
  • Environmental Stress: Sudden changes in temperature or drafts can cause leaf drop. Ensure stable conditions and avoid placing the plant near heating or cooling vents.
  • Repotting Shock: Alocasias may drop leaves temporarily after repotting. Ensure proper care during this adjustment period.
Fungal Issues
  • Leaf Spot: Brown or yellow spots on leaves may indicate fungal infections. Improve air circulation, avoid overhead watering, and treat with a fungicide if necessary.
  • Root Rot: Foul odor from the soil, mushy roots, and yellowing leaves can indicate root rot. Trim affected roots and repot in fresh, well-draining soil.
