Sunburnt or too dry??
Just got this beautiful dragon scale and the ends of the leaves are yellowing! Not sure if it’s sunburn or dry? The plant is about 10 ft away from a west facing window and 12 ft away from a south facing one.
Alocasia 'Dragon Scale'
10ft to light, indirect
4” pot with drainage
Last watered 23 hours ago
Cedar Rapids, Iowa
I think the spot is fine but I would definitely mist it once a week. I got mine a few weeks ago and
told me to mist it once a week for extra humidity! Also as new leaves come in the older leaves will die
Yellow leaves on an Alocasia Dragon Scale is one of the most common problems and is most commonly due to overwatering. Make sure you let the top few inches of soil dry out before watering. Also, make sure the soil is loose and very well-draining, and the pot is not larger than it has to be.
