Is it too late to save my Alocasia?

Annam_CApril 13, 2012

I have a Alocasia which recently started to bloom.. when I saw this, I decided to move it to the window so that it got more light but the flower started to rot. I removed the rotting flower back to it's original spot. 1 of the 2 leaves started to turn yellow and then rotted very quickly, the whole process took only 1 day. I still have 1 leaf left.

Can this plant survive? What do I need to do? Should I stop watering for a while?

my luck with these is you can save them. When mine did this same thing i stopped watering and let it completely dry out (actually put it in a closet for a month) and didn't water at all. took it out, bright sunny window and watered. BOOM it came back. i did this a total of 5 times and it came back everytime.
