Are they possibly sitting in a draft or under the heating vent. They do like moist soil and a bit of humidity. Do they stay inside year-round?

The plant stays near our terrace door, could cold air cause this.

It is possible. Tropical plants do not do well with cold drafts, low to no humidity, or hot, drying heat /heat vents.

I agree I agree. Keep the plant out of drafts, away from the cold air and keep the humidity level up.

Hey, is that a ZZ Plant...Zamioculcas zamiifolia is see sharing the pot with your Alocasia??

The leaf of our zamioculcas broke of and we put it there to see if its root since we dont have new soil .
