Re: [aroid-l] growing tip of Alocasia

I always peel all the dry scales off, even if they start off looking like a
normal tip. I go down until the nice green or red bud is fully exposed. I
have some slight experimental evidence from a propagation class that I
taught that these scale inhibit growth until they have been soaked for a
long time. We did the experiment for several years of classes, with
consistent results of more rapid growth from peeled than unpeeled. I never
tried making an extract of the scales, though, to see if I could inhibit
anything with them. Derek

Subject: [aroid-l] growing tip of Alocasia

hi all,

just a small question...  i have a pot of Alocasia sp.
Corazon (forgot the latin species name) which had two
growing plants.  one went dormant, and it's been like
that for a while.  today i peeled off a bit of the top
to reveal the growing point.  unfort. the top seemed
hollow and dried out and i kept peeling more, until i
broke the tip, revealing a firm and green stem.  will
something grow from this stem even after i broke the
growing tip?
