I just noticed that my African Mask flowered! In the first picture does it look like these seeds would be viable once mature? I also have another flower that popped up. Can I hand pollinate it? I don't have the first clue about getting seeds from Alocasia.

Don't know if African Mask is sterile or not… You will need one additional flower unless you have pollen in the frig or freezer.
