Hello I have an Elephant ears plant, might be Alocasia Odora. It comes in, in the winter and usually grows well. It has one yellow leaf, the other 2 are fine. Well drained, watered, good environment so any ideas re the yellowing would be welcomed.

Perhaps it is just an old leaf. the removal of the chlorophyll, green pigment is common. You could give it a 'dose of Epsom salts' as that contains magnesium which is essential for chlorophyll production.

I agree,it's probably an old leaf,so I would just take it off,and see how the rest of the plant progresses..
