Dear All, I have some plants of A. sikokianum for five and six years and I have
never seen an offset. I also have found that when ever I get a really huge bloom
on a plant and let it set seeds I never see the plant again. I suspect that they
overdo things and haven't strength enough to grow a new tuber. I now cut off the
heads of any flower that sets seeds, most of the flowers don't.
