Arm dropped after new leaf grew

Is this from too much humidity?
The arm of the smaller leaf just bent in 2 days although i gained a new leaf just last week, which was Growing over 2 weeks.
0ft to light, indirect
11” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 week ago

This is totally normal for Alocasias. They will shed old leaves as new leaves come on. Almost one to one in the beginning. As soon as I know it’s not bouncing back with water I cut off the old leaf so the energy can go to the rest of the plant. πŸͺ΄ Yours looks very happy and healthy!!
Oh wow i did not know that. Almost as soon as that new leaf came out, this one dropped to the ground. No changes in temp, humidity anything. Just dropped. Ok i might cut the arm at the base. It does not look like it will repair. Ty!
