Dear Sherry,
It depends on a species. For example Alocasia wentii produces bulblets about 1.5 cm in diameter and very few of them put leaves. The don't die in pots, they may start to grow even after 2-3 years.
Bulblets of A. infernalis put leaves very quickly, after a few weeks, but later they grow slowly. While A. wentii from a bulblet produces 3-5 leaves a year, A. infernalis (from bulblets too), 1-2 leaves.

I read "I think that bulbils smaller than 1cm rarely generate a new plant." posted by Marco about Amorphophallus.
  What about the bulblets that form on the stalks/stems of Alocasia?  Is there a certain size that's more likely to succeed?  If so, when they fall off the parent plant, will they continue to "mature" and eventually sprout?
                                          Thanks, Sherry
