  Alocasia 'Sinuata'
From: Eric_L_._Schmidt/LEU/CYS/Orlando at priv.ci.orlando.fl.us on 2001.06.27 at 08:41:57(6895)
Anyone know about Alocasia 'Sinuata'? Is this a hybrid or is it a species?

Well, Alocasia sinuata is a species yet I have a trouble telling it apart
from portora when small. That brings me to question is thier a difference in
portora and portodora? Are they both hybrids of portei and odora? I have
seen this spelled a few ways.

A. sinuata has MUCH stiffer leaves with a distinctly blistered surface.
