The plant appears to be healthy but the edges of the leaves are curling up. Can you tell me why? This is a houseplant.

Alocasia is a "houseplant," it's true, but it is not an easy one, as the article says. Nor is it a beginner's plant.

After you've had some success with more adaptable plants, give the alocasia another try.
