is there mold on my alocasia leaf?
Hello out there - 

I know Alocasia love humidity, so I bought a mini humidifier and was using it daily on the play for about 5 days. Suddenly a leaf developed the markings above. I'm concerned it's fungus or mold - what do people think? And what should I do, if anything?

    Pei That looks like either leaf fungal infection or overwater! How close do you place your humidifier to the plant? Too close would let the water droplets accumulates on the leaves which would cause leaf fungal infection. Another possibility is you have overwatered your plant and it showed the symptom now (not because of the humidifier). How much and how often do you water it?

      Sheila It's definitely from placing the humidifier too close to the plant. I've stopped using the humidifier.

      Do you think I should remove the leaf?

          Sheila Thanks. I did it. Sad to see it go, but I guess I had to. Raising Alocasia is difficult!

            Pei 100%! But they are so beautiful. I am sucker for all Alocasia. They are such a beautiful family. I guess beauty comes with a (rewarding) price? HA
