Flowering Elephant Ears

I was quite surprised last year when my elephant ears bloomed. Why did this happen?

Elephant ears (Alocasia) are grown and best known for their attractive foliage not the flowers. These tropical beauties, like other plants, will bloom when they reach maturity and receive the perfect growing conditions. Most gardeners remove any flowers that form so all the energy can go into producing more attractive leaves. If the flowers are left on the plant they will develop into clusters of red or orange berries. Or you can enjoy the show and wait to see if you get a repeat performance next season.
