What’s wrong with my Alocasia

Asked July 2, 2019, 9:44 AM EDT

Since I repotted my plant, a couple of leaves started drooping. The veins on the underside of the plant turned back and the stem getting thinner and softer. I make sure the plant is moderately watered. Not sure what else I did wrong. Can someone please guide me ?

Thank you for contacting us about your plant. I am not personally familiar with alocasia, however, I suspect that the plant is either reacting to the transplanting or that soil is too moist. This article explains the soil and moisture requirements very well: https://www.thespruce.com/grow-alocasia-indoors-1902735

You didn't mention your location or when it was repotted. I assume you are in the northern hemisphere so the plant is not in its dormant season. It is not uncommon for plants to undergo "transplant shock" when they are repotted; it will probably recover with routine care.
