Elephant Ear with 5 seed pods in different stages!
We have an Alocasia Elephant Ear that has been in my family for 3 generations. It has "bloomed" multiple times over the last few years for us. My mother's generation never got even 1 bloom. Now, the most mature plant has 5 "bloom" at once! There are no new leaves coming out though. Have you ever heard of such a thing? What should we do? We don't need the seeds as we already have multiple plantings. We would like any information about this though that you may have. Thank you! I can send photos if you would like. Laura
Thank you! I thought as much. It has been such a neat thing to have this plant to keep through the generations. Means a lot to me that my husband now takes great care of it! He enjoys seeing just how large it can get. Will cut them back now.
The leaves are being sacrificed for the seed pods. I would remove the seed pods.
What an amazing heirloom!
