  Amorph and Alocasia info
From: GeoffAroid at aol.com on 2000.06.09 at 17:40:33(4693)
Dear All,

I have the opportunity to purchase a plant of Amorphophallus stipitatus and I
wondered if anyone out there (Wilbert?) was familiar with this species? It
doesnt seem to be included in Wilbert's excellent volume on Amorphs. Any info
on country of origin, growth, appearance etc would be great.

Also, is the name Alocasia reginae familar to anyone? I have this listed in a
catalogue but again am unfamiliar with it. Is it a good name and if so is it
a big species?

The name Am. stipitatus exists but I have not been able to find out what
goes with that name, neither has Li Heng. The type material of this species
is destroyed. The name suggests it is a species of the yunnanensis-alliance,
which all have a stipitate spadix (excl. tonkinensis). The material Chen Yi
has sold under that name is most likely yunnanensis itself but that needs
confirmation on a flowering specimen.
