  Alocasia cuprea ID needed
From: Don Martinson llmen at execpc.com> on 2000.10.01 at 18:44:41(5492)
I have a small plant that I received labeled as Alocasia cuprea. It
is pictured at the following:

The veination doesn't seem as deeply set as plants I've seen and the
underside of the leaf is definitely not red-violet (per Hortus III).
Is this plant misidentified or do these features take time to develop
more fully?

It is not the true A.cuprea , it is often called 'Green Shields' or green
cuprea here in Australia, but found out it is now correctly known as
Alocasia clypeolata.
