Hello,

I am really worried about my Alocasia. The spots on leaves developed about 3 weeks ago and there is more and more of them. They are quite small (about 2mm in diameter, though some are a little bit bigger) and appear almost clear with light brown-yellow rim around them (the light seeps through them), like the mesophyll of the leaf has been decomposed. I've repotted the plant 2 months ago and it otherwise appears healthy? It has never caused me any problems and grows quite vigorously.
I thank you kindly for your answers Smiling .

Here are additional pictures Smiling Plant is in a nursery pot but stands in a big ceramic one. I heard Alocasias like being a little bit root-bound.
Also I've stopped fertilizing it (NPK 6-3-6), since the last now mature leaf has a different colour than the previous ones- bright green with patches of slight discoloration.

There is a new problem - its new leaf appears quite smaller that the last one but it has the same discoloration.

Nevertheless, I am still primarly concerned about the spots and if you happen to know the answer please inform me Sad
