The ones that I do dig for storage dont have any signs of damage from pests although I have seen some of my Alocasia get chomped on by what I thought was grubs. Originally I had one plant of Colocasia gigantea, which was planted by itself in a large bed and left to grow huge in its first year. The following years it has produced dozens and dozens of pups and I have left them to grow up next to the Momma plant, only thinning occasionally when it gets too crowded. Maybe all the plants are competing for water/nutrients and thus not getting as big. I have transplanted several bulbs to different parts of the yard, but they dont seem to quite that big anymore either. Strangely, that same summer I got 7-8 foot Xanthosoma violeceum and an Ensete almost 15 foot tall (cant get them over 10 foot now). The soil gets a fresh layer of manure every spring, so Im really not sure.
