Re: Odd behavior on Colocasia.

 I have what I believe is a hybrid Colocasia used as a food crop growing 
in my display. I got the plant several years ago and it has just 
recently started behaving oddly by  putting out new leaves and as the 
old leaves grow a knot forms at the upper portion of the petiole and a 
new leaf emerges out. I am guessing that this leaf and petiole is acting 
similar to a runner. So far it has not formed new plants from these 
growths but it is untelling as some are fairly new. Has anyone seen this 
before? I have been growing a lot of these and this is a first. At the 
moment the plant has 3 of these forming.

Here are the photos of the plant in question.
