i used to plant my alocasia plumbae nigra on a pot.
it gets big & slowly become very small when it gets crowded.
despite feeding it, the new grows are still very small.
have given some of them to my friends when i remove them.
i plant the only one i have on the ground & it has grow big.

yes this is a nice gardening tip for those who want solitary large specimen plants. Remove its babies (suckers, offsets) and the mother plant will grow bigger.
