Can anyone point me to a photo of the bloom/inflorescence for Alocasia
I have looked throughout the IAS site and related links but have not found
any information on the flowering details of Alocasia. I suspect it is not
very impressive, but I am not sure why I have not found any references.
In the pot with my plant is a small, prehistoric-looking shoot (1-1/2") with
a very geometric-looking, nodding head on it (3/8" dia.) in dark brown to
black. At first I thought it to be some type of fungus bloom. It is very
sturdy and is sprouting right up alongside the Alocasia stem. I have not dug
down to find its source as of yet.
Does this sound familiar? How will this progress and is there anything I can
do to make sure it develops to its fullest?
Help? This is fascinating.
