variagated Alocasia Stingray
I was not sure who to contact on your website about this particular
question. I would like some assistance Identifying this plant. I am
relatively sure I have I.D'd it correctly, but that is notoriously mistaken
with plant enthusiasts. If you can help me out, or are at all interested
in using these photos or any others I might send you for an article on the
site, please let me know. I have what is becoming a large collection of
tropical plants including mosteras elephant ears (multiple varieties) &
alocasias as well as some varieties I have no idea about yet.
Hello Master Gardener,
I have located what I believe to be a unique plant variety
since I can not locate photos of it in any database I have checked. I am
linking photos of the variegated stingray I found in the wild here in Tumaco, Colombia.
As you can see in the photos, the leaves of this plant are significantly
different than the Stingray you have. Also the stems have a striated
variegation that is very nice. This plant is showing very vigorous growth
habits putting on two leaves in the span of one week. I believe this one
to be a juvenile, & am waiting impatiently to see it grow to full
potential. I would like to make it available for purchase in the coming
year once it begins to have young plants available. I also have several
other plants that may be of interest to your customers which I have collected
& cultivated from wild sources here. Please feel free to contact me
relating to these plants or the Stingray that I am sending photos of now.
