I was given an alocasia bulb that grows to 2-3 feet. The bottom was mush so I cut it off, let it dry out and then planted it in a six inch pot, 1 part perlite, 1 part miracle grow potting mix and a handful of seafood compost. I have the crown of the bulb sticking out of the soil. It has one root under the soil so far and the growing tip is greening up and starting to push out. Should I have the tip buried, and when should I repot? Also, should I still fertilize weekly if I used seafood compost in the soil? I have it inside currently as it's still to cold outside. Thank you!

No need for fertilizer every week because its in new soil. . Don't bury it and be patient, if it's going to root, it will root. After the plant gets healthy leaves and becomes top heavy you could transplant into a larger container., but keep the container small.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
