Don't toss them.
Try potting them in a container small enough to hold the
tubers with some soil-less mix with some added perlite
for drainage.  Keep them on the dry side; not completely
dry but never wet.
It will take some time but you will see a little rolled up
little leaf emerge at the top.

i have a couple of Alocasias that have not thrived lately.  i have now a couple of stumps or sections of the rootstock that are not growing.  is there a way to make them re-awaken?  or should i just toss them?
