So, not gonna lie, very new to the whole house plant business. But now that I have started I am kinda of addicted. They are taking over my house. To business...
I bought an Alocasia X from a department store here in Chicago. It was doing ok when i bought it, not the greatest, but not dead. I brought it home and after numerous googles decided to plant it in an equal mixture of Miracle Grow Potting Mix and an orchid bark based mix.
It is in a high light window sill.
It stays moist but not too wet.
Proper drain holes.
Sitting on a humidity tray (homemade of rocks and water).
It is juts not doing good at all! The tips of the leaves are turning brown and one leave has a brown spot on it. IT has only put off one new leaf since I have gotten it about 2 months ago. I posted some picture (please excuses the dishes on the back ground =) ). Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!
