Why is My Houseplant Dying

Hi Judy. What is my plant and why doesn’t it get more leaves?
Thank you Carlotta.

Hi Carlotta,

Your plant is an Alocasia calidora. Alocasia plants 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.
