Hello, can someone help me.
The leafs of my alocasia wentii get slimer and smaller.
It looked good in summer but now it stands in our hallway and the leafs shrink for no apparent reason.
The plant has a trunk and two suckers.

I see by your profile that you live in Vienna. Does your plant live inside all the time or do you keep it out of doors during the warm months?
It's possible the plant is going dormant and in that case it would be normal for the new leaves to grow in progressively smaller. If it is an indoor plant it may need to be fertilized or may need more light. If the plant has recently come into the house it should perk up when the warm weather arrives and it is outside again.

When its summer it stands outside and stays in shade and it has a 20 or 10 cm long trunk and two suckers.
Its winter and we put it in our hallway. The hallway is pretty warm and sometimes its get a bit cold there but not too much.
The plant has no spidermites even though the air is dry there .
The sun shines the most time in there.
It also slowed a bit down with growing.
