If you keep the bulbils dry until they show buds, they will never rot.
But if the bulbils are too small, they may die.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Leaf bulbils

As the growing season for Amorphophallus draws to a close I have a number of plants developing leaf bulbils.
What is the best way to handle these as the leaf dies down?
Do we need to use a knife to remove leaf tissue or is it safer to let the leaf tissue dessicate away from the bulbil?
Is there a risk of the bulbils rotting as the leaf collapses?
