|Description||Alocasia Zebrina can easily be propagated in water because of its semi-aquatic, swamp-dwelling ancestors. During the plant’s dormancy, move it to somewhere warm and reduce your watering until it starts growing again in spring. Yellowing or spotting on leaves: suggests the plant has been overwatered – make sure you allow the top soil to dry out before watering the plant again, especially in winter. Browning edges: indicate the plant has either been underwatered or scorched by direct sunlight. Make sure your Alocasia Zebrina only receives bright, indirect sunlight. Leaves fading and dying in fall/winter: Alocasia Zebrina goes into dormancy as temperatures drop and days shorten. Don’t panic if this happens, just reduce your watering and|
