Alocasia Propagation from Cuttings
Next time I visit the garden I'll lay them on their sides in moist soil and mound up mulch along the sides. Soon they'll begin to form plantlets along the nodes!
Here's where the collapsed trunks of an alocasia macrorrhiza landed last year. They're looking better than ever!
If you want to find your own Alocasias, gardeners here in Florida can find them at Lowes and garden centers. When shopping for bulbs, make sure that there is green growth at the end of the stem, and that you see no signs of rotting. To get fresh bulbs I recommend Plant Delights nursery or other mail order suppliers. Just remember that if your plant starts to rot, don't throw it out just yet. Simply remove the mushy portion, rinse, let it dry, and replant.
