Last year, I saw my A. dactylifer grew a bulbil at the apex of the 
petiole, so I tried an experiment growing it. After the leaf dropped, 
I planted the bulbil, but shortly thereafter it had turned 
brownish-black when I checked. Fearing that it was starting to rot, I 
removed it from the pot, cleaned it, and put it in a covered clear 
plastic cup so that I can keep an eye on it. To prevent it from 
drying out, I moistened it once in a while. It very slowly 
transformed into a tiny tuber with a growing point. After still 
sometime, it started to grow roots and that's when I planted it again.
