Hello!
I just bought this plant less than a week ago. I forgot the name of it, so if someone could help me figure that out it’ll be great.
One of the leaves is starting to yellow. I’m worried since it’s brand new and already having problems.
I don’t think I overwatered, but I might have.... it’s indoors, there is some sunlight but not direct. The soil is now wet since I watered it but there’s no water leaking on the base of it.
Looking forward to hearing which type of plant it is, what it needs in terms of conditions, what caused the leaf to yellow and what should I do with this leaf? Should I leave it or cut it off? Also, is there a way to cut off this leaf and try to root it (to be used as a new plant?).
Also, how much bigger should this plant grow? And how sensitive are they for temperatures?

Thanks!!!
Nurit

Exceptionally decorative house plant! This unique plant deserves a prominent spot in your home! Alocasia zebrina doesn't need a lot of light as it originated in tropical rainforests in Asia. Certainly doesn't need direct sun but keep it in a warm living room, summer and winter. Place it somewhere it will be admired! This house plant with large, graceful, heart-shaped leaves is easy to look after. Alocasia zebrina can actually flower and then you'll immediately see that it belongs to the arum family. Alocasia zebrine is known as the Zebra plant and also Elephant plant.

*Warm probably means +60f. And you better get a pot with proper drainage NOW.
