Greetings Magdalena,
Are the Red dots part of the stem (?) are they moving ? I’m not familiar with “dots” on the stems.
You see red mites on Alocasia periodically.
Did you Take a look with a hand lens or magnifying glass?
Depending upon where you are, mites are out and about. Gardners are seeing them now here in the upper Midwest ( U.S.A. ) this time of year.
Cheers,
Michael
