  Alocasia Black Velvet blooms
From: Lester Kallus <lkallus at earthlink.net> on 1997.04.29 at 17:58:55(677)
I'm not sure what the species is for the Alocasia Black Velvet (it's listed
in the Glasshouse Works web page as Black Velevt and not by its
horticultural name).

Lester: Everything being equal the inflorescence will set back leaf
production as it is essentially achlorophyllous.

Assuming that the flower is as boring as I think it's going to be, I'll
take that as advice that I should remove it. I've always removed caladium
inflorescences for that reason and guess I should do the same with this.
