Hello Aroiders --

Long-time lurker, first time writer. I just wanted to share a photo of
my Alocasia (Odora, I believe) inflorescence. It's not the first time
it's flowered, it's just the first time I've had a list of people who
might be as happy about it as I am.


A question for those who know more about this than I do: Will this
produce seeds? Do I have to do anything to help? If it does seed, I'd
happy offer them to anyone who wanted some.

Greetings, Lurker!

I have only had seeds set by pollination. You will get lots of offsets from your plant if it is happy, and since it is blooming I will assume that is the case.

By the bloom, I would say that you have Alocasia macrorrhizos.

Happy days,
