  Colocasias
From: Jose Almandoz jose at almandoz.com> on 2000.08.06 at 11:04:42(5245)
Hello,

I'm new to this list. I live in Northern Spain, and I'd love to know
about some good nurseries able to export, where I could find a good
choice of species and cultivars of Colocasia and related plants, as I'm
becoming very fond of them...

Thank you very much. Hope you can help.

Hello Dean that is a different species. The one in California is Black
Magic the one in Hawaii is Black runner. Black runner has more of a
ruffle to the edge of the leaf and will send out the runners. Take a
look at my site for pics of all different kinds of forms.

I have been interested in breeding and growing Colocasias over the last
few years. I am not even sure how many species are in this group and I
have found little to no information on some species. I would be
extremely interested in seeing a photo of them or even a description.
One question I would like to know is, are all species able to produce
seed? I have found very few known seeding forms of colocasia. In my
alocasia hybrids I have produced I notice that most are sterile and
rarely produce pollen. I find similar traits in some colocasia forms I
grow making me wonder if they are possible hybrids?
I have taken pictures of berries on colocasia species as well as seed
which I have found very hard to find photos of either. I will hopefully
have something good written up soon for a aroid newsletter article or
aroideana.
