I think my Elephant ear is pregnant.

Elephant ear seed pods
I purchased a small Alocasia at a yard sale 3 months ago. The pot size was about 1 gallon, with 1 full leaf showing.
It has grown by a foot since I planted it, in a mostly shady area, with plenty of good soil. Yesterday, I noticed 2 seed pods growing. From what I've read, this is rare, especially on such a young plant.
Any information on what to do with the seed pods and how to care for them would be wonderful! I can't find much about them on the internet.
I live in Tampa, Florida. This year has been extra rainy, when it doesn't rain, we water the yard with an irrigation system.
