Common Problems with Alocasia Frydek plant
Drooping and wilting - Alocasia Frydek stores water in their stem, so droopiness is usually caused by underwatering. Once the stems are filled with water they will perk back up. Wilting can also be caused by overwatering, so the general rule is, always stick your finger into the potting mix to feel for moisture and determine the right cause of action.
Brown tips - Probably due to dry conditions (either dry soil or too little humidity), or too much direct sun can cause brown, crispy tips and edges.
Yellow leaves - This could be a sign of either overwatering or underwatering or insufficient airflow. Check that you are not keeping the frydek plant in an isolated corner.
Losing leaves - Please don't be alarmed by leaf loss, as the plant grows new leaves it will eventually lose the lower-most leaves. Common for Alocasia.
Leaf spot - This is a less common problem. If you frydek plant is suffering from leaf spot, use sharp, sterilized scissors to prune off the infected parts of the plant before it spreads. Use fungicide to treat the plant. Quarantine this plant from others while it's sick.
