 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.
