Hi Michael,
   Thanks for the info!  I'll try breaking the skin on them... gently.  It is an A. longiloba that is the plant in question.   Marek, thank you for your answer, too.   I've never had success with the little bulblets,  I think I know why now.  Smiley emoticon   I'll sure give that a try.    Thanks again, folks.
                               Prayin' for rain in Texas,
                                               Sherry

Older offsets on many Alocasias can have a tough skin on them .
To ensure sprouting this skin must be broken carefully , no need to remove .
Fresh ones will sprout very fast . The stem offsets like on longiloba seem to sprout very easily .

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
