  alocasia macrorrhiza, cane for propagating?

Can you describe your method for me? What is the stalk like? Is it
similar to a Dieffenbachia cane? I haven't seen an A. macrorrhiza stalk so
I'm just trying to get an idea if it is similar enough for me to use your
method for my A. micholitziana 'Frydek'.

Well, it does look like a Dieffenbachia stalk or a trunk. I know what you are
talking about when you say eyes on it. It should work I would think if you
planted the cuttings with the eyes up and add a little hormone to it. As for
the Alocasia macrorrhiza you can take the stalk and cut it in to slices or I
have even cut the slices in to squares and they have produced plants. I don't
know if this will work with all of the Alocasias. I have not tried it with
any other ones. Let me know if it works.
