  Alocasia robusta
From: Pugturd at aol.com on 2000.03.26 at 18:55:48(4258)
OK someone asked me about this plant today. Alocasia robusta I have heard of
it a few times. I finally looked it up and know I don't have it. But from
what I read I want one. So does anyone know a source for this or have
cuttings or bulbs to spare. Let me know sounds very interesting to grow.

I believe it grows in Borneo. I talked to the guy at Malesian tropicals he
said he would have some for sale next spring. I have been looking for this
plant for a few years. I believe it is the largest Alocasia. I know Dewey has
a beautiful picture of one he should share. It is a guy holding a leaf about
the size of an elephant LOL. It is also one very unusual greenish blue color.
I lost the picture but would like to get it again. If any one does get this
plant I would be interested in a bulb later. Also is Dewey still around have
not heard form him in a while? Well, I Would love to hear more about the
search for this beautiful plant.

Thanks very much for that link. The web page pop ups don't work on my
computer. What a giant eh !! I thought the blob in the middle was a
spider, then realised it was a man. Can't wait for my seeds.

Thanks again

WOW!
Is this plant somewhere we can see if we come to the International Aroid
Conference in Malaysia?

Hi Susyn

Not that particlar plant - it's 900 km away in the far east of the state BUT
A. robusta is common here and I'll make sure to track down a large one for
you all to see

Dear Folks

For some curious reason Malesiana Tropicals website has been showing Alocasia robusta as out of stock. This is not the case and we have plenty of stock of A. robusta available for sale. I have now corrected the glitch on our site.

Regards to all
