Why is it doing this?

No new growth for months now

My alocasia bambino fell off its shelf and the trunk broke off. Is it salvageable? #911

What is this stuff?

Have you ever been so mad at a genus of plants that it became your obsession out of spite? No? Just me? 🀣 I killed a Poly. And then a Regal Shields. And then that reverse psychology set in and I was like, β€œDamn it, I’m gonna figure these #Alocasia out!” I did my research. I nervously got an #AlocasiaBambino since they stay small, and I wanted to be able to keep my newest pet project at eye level on my desk so I could monitor any changes. πŸ‘€ A few weeks later, I think I’ve finally figured it out! No more brown spots! No more yellowing! No more crispy tips! No more drooping! πŸ₯³ For anyone else struggling with Alocasia (I FEEL YOU), here’s what I changed that ended up helping me: β€’ I moved it farther away from the light. It’s now about 5ft away from a southeast facing window, so it doesn’t recieve any direct light. β€’ Instead of a ceramic pot like before, I switched to a terracotta pot to increase breathability. β€’ I switched to exclusively bottom watering, 20 minutes seems to do the trick. I’m so excited! I was getting so discouraged, and starting to believe that I would never be able to keep an Alocasia alive. Turns out, all I needed was to make a few simple changes. #WednesdayWins TL;DR β€” Struggling with a particular genus of plants? Don’t give up. Treat it like an experiment! #AlocasiaAddicts #AlocasiaAdvice #PlantParenthood #PlantParentConfessions #KeepGrowing #GrowingThroughIt #PlantsMakePeopleHappy

Thinking about LECA

My alocasia amazonica bambino has a spot on this leaf that looks like it's starting to dry up and crisp... And two others on their way. They get medium sunlight and are fairly close to the humidifier. What can I do to help my plant friend?
