Hello everyone! I just got my Alocasia a few days ago but...

Hello everyone! I just got my Alocasia a few days ago but I don't know what's wrong with it. Please help! (Look at the progress pictures from today.) Ellie doesn't look well and I know Alocasia’s can be drama queens so if you have any tips then please enlighten me! Also, I changed her soil today since I noticed her original soil had some MOLD. Yes, mold... but I also noticed she has some corms which I want to propagate.
Should I propagate them in perlite? so many questions PLEASE HELP #AlocasiaAddicts #PlantAddict #NewGrowth #HappyPlants #PropagationStation #Alocasia #AlocasiaSilverDragon #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #NewPlantMom #RarePlants

Try draining the water completely before putting it back in the litter pot mine did the same I didn’t notice the water in the miner pot and mine was doing the same hope this helps
You’re about to laugh… But they’re hungry 😂… they need plant food soo they began taking nutrients from the other leaves. Cut all the leaves that are drooping below the rim. That’s a big silver dragon and they need humidity out the Ying Yang.

As a precaution of me giving advice, make sure she doesn’t have spider mites. If ever noticed webbing… That’s spider mites and they will eat the life out of your Dragon.
@PlantJedi I noticed there was a spider when I was taking her out of the box. And I saw a very tiny one coming out of the soil so I put a mix of 1-1 of water and vinegar which my friend recommended and sprayed it on the leaves. I haven’t seen any more spiders ever since but she looks sad.
What plant food do you recommend for her ?
@SeamlessSoybean you killed the spiders but not the spider mites. Spiders is almost always a sign of spider mites. Spiders eat the mites… I’ll send you some stuff… do you have any 70% rubbing alcohol, peppermint essential oil, or tea tree essential oil?
@PlantJedi I don’t but I can get some !
@SeamlessSoybean use this immediately. Mighty Mint neem oil & Peppermint... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0CH2XP8KZ?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

Once a week until she’s healthy… after she is healthy, every 2 weeks.
This will help her rebound as well… Big Leaf Energy : RTU Wellness... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09WFVKMH4?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
This is good once a week regardless the situation. It’ll keep the leaves healthy and happy.
@PlantJedi thank you!! Should I spray it on the soil or leaves? Or should I spray it on both ?
@SeamlessSoybean both. Pour some directly into the soil. But the BLE is for Leaf only.
