Alocasia Frydek and dormancy/dividing
I have always been fond of this houseplant but didn't even know what it was until recently. It has always gone dormant in winter and that's fine with me.
However, when it's warm, it grows from at least 4 different places in the pot, and it occurs to me that perhaps I ought to divide it.
Does anyone know how to do that? I searched here and saw pictures of "bulbils," but at least above ground, mine doesn't look like that. It has what look like tubers (2 or 3 of them) lying on top of the surface, and there are growing tips on the ends.
How do I know where to cut them apart?
When is the best time to do it?
Plus, these tuber things are sometimes barely connected to any roots, and in fact a huge one broke off a while back (I stuck it in a pot outside ... no news yet). Is that normal? Or was I supposed to bury these tuber-ish things?
