ID non-leaf growth on alocasia (regal shield)

Theresa K
last month


Does anyone know what these growth are from my Regal Shield alocasia? This one is the inside stalk from a small offshoot, but it doesn’t look like an unfurled leaf that usually grows out of the middle. What is it?

I also have two tiny offshoots starting to grow from the sides. They don’t look like unfurled leaves either, but I don’t think they’re strange roots growing towards the sky.

    these are off-shoots. when they are that small they grow rather slowly. every leaf is enclosed in a protective sheath: this is what you are seeing. eventually the leaf will extend out.
