Hi Carlotta,

Green large leaf Alocasia Plant

Alocasia Plant

I think your plant is an Alocasia calidora which is a member of the Araceae family. It looks very similar to a tree Philodendron which is also a member of the Araceae family. However Tree Philodendrons usually have only one stem while your plant appears to have multiple stems. Alocasia Plants (and Philodendron) are very Poisonous HouseplantsIn her new book, Don’t Feed Me to Your Cat!, plant care professional Judy Feldstein shares information about twenty-five common houseplants, each with various levels of toxicity, and the possible consequences if your pet or child snacks on them. so please keep your plant away from small children and pets. I think your plant is having problems because it has out grown its existing pot and needs a larger container. Here are some other plant care tips for an Alocasia Plant.
