There is a Suwannee Laboratories, Inc., King Road, Lake City, FL 32055,
(904)752-6090. I don't know whether this is the lab. where the Colocasia
'Marble Gem' with the pink, purple and green leaves was tissue cultured, but
if interested, give them a call to find out. Maybe this is the right

Thanks for the info. I called but it was too late in the day and there
wasn't anyone there that could help me. I'm going to try again in the
morning. I'll post what I find out.

I spoke with a lady at Suwanee today. Apparently several other people have
called about this plant today. I'd hoped posting that I intended to call
would keep them from getting inundated with phone calls from fellow
Aroiders. Anyway, if someone got more info than me I'd be interested to hear
about it. All she knew is that they had brought back some Alocasias from
Brazil and that this particular plant is still in very small supply. They've
only sold it to local customers so she was surprised to hear about the
article and she couldn't comment on the name. She said the person I needed
to talk to wasn't in but she'd have him call me.

If they only sell to local customers, I'd like to be a local customer. This
lab. is only about an hour's drive from where I live!

By the way there is a "Taro Black Marble Colocasia multiflora 'Black Magic'
" listed in the Paradise Water Gardens 2001 catalog on page 67. This
marbled Colocasia is described as "greenish black with dark black mottling
splashed with green". Do you suppose that this is the same or similar

Hi Richard,
Let me know what they sell as I would like to order some plants as well.
Maybe a whole lot of us can put quite a nice big order together.
Best Regards

Many times one is able to obtain plants from other parts of the world in
gardens of yet different parts of the world. I have seen Colombian anthurium
in the middle of Indonesia, well grown at that, and alocasias in the middle
of remote areas of Ecuador both in residential gardens and in local plant
dealer sales or decoration areas. You forget that many of the plants of the
world were some of the original things taken to the New World and back again
to homelands. Another words, you can find really oddball plants in very
illogical places just because someone loved them or they were a tag along one
way or another. To say it came from Brazil could well be true, but where it
was originally from could be anywhere and most likely Asia.
