I found a very informative page addressing Aroid Pollination while searching for info on my A. konjac. I'm going to try crossing some of my Anthuriums!

Pollination in Aroids including Anthurium, Philodendron, Alocasia, Amorphophallus, Colocasia, Spathiphyllum, Monstera and other aroid genera

Gibberellic Acid is readily available in the US - don't know about where you are. If you're not careful, you can really mess up your plants with it.

I'm happy to share about pollinating aroids - I've been doing it since 1979! My experience includes Alocasia, Philodendron, Caladium, Adelonema, Amorphophallus, Typhonium, and Anthurium. This time of year is my busy aroid breeding season, with Alocasia, Philodendron and Anthurium in the forefront.

Thanks LariAnn .. I'm delighted to say that in my 2nd attempt at growing Caladiums from seeds I have been successful! I've got all sorts of babies growing and some even have color! Last week I spent over an hour picking out the teeny tiny bulbs and transplanting them. Here is a picture of some of them.

Look at that babies. Anna, Wish you get some nice colors from those babies.

I am not sure if gibberelic acid available here at garden center or chemical store. But i have seen some online site sell them with other plant hormon.

LariAnn, you have a looong experienced with alocasia. Thats great. I have alocasia odora with marble like variegate (aureo variegata ?). About last year it come to flower and set seed. It have self compatibility since there only one flower at that time. It produce about 60% variagate off spring.

It also produce one seedling wich have different leaf shape from common odora.
What other alocasia species which compatible to odora ? Is it will produce variegate offspring if i use variegata odora as mother plant ?
