Default Re: Help!! Alocasia cuprea

If you just put this plant in within the last couple weeks, don't worry. It is very common for the dwarf alocasias to drop their leaves when put into a new environment. In a few weeks after the last leaf falls you will see a new sprout coming up that apparently is better suited to viv life. They look the same to me, but maybe the plant knows the difference. I have had cuprea, regina, nebula and melo(rugosa). Nearly all of them dropped their leaves when I first put them in their vivarium. They are all ding quite well now.
