Bent stalks on Alocasia African Mask Plant

phr775 added on October 12, 2015 | Answered

I had an accident today in which my entire plant stand fell over on me, including all my plants, knick-knacks, and photos. My African Mask plant, which I've had for a couple of months now and is doing great, fell over head-first. Some of the bigger stalks are bent, to the point where they won't stand alone without support. I've got them tied upright for now. Will these damaged stalks be okay? Will I have to eventually remove them? Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

I would continue to just support the leaves and plant structure.
Your plant will likely correct itself over a bit of time.

Alocasia will die down and go dormant at some time, so you plant can have a fresh start again.

Here is a link to refresh you on the care requirements.
