Hello! I read in a e mail and on a website that Alocasia Hilobeauty was a
cross between a caladium and a Colocasia?

Also that Alocasia sarian was a hybrid between zebrina and Alocasia
micholitziana. Now I am not sure who it was that made these claims or were
they got their info. But it does sound possible? What do you think?

If so, then it is not an Alocasia; if designated by any genus at all, it would have to be Colocadium or Caladiocasia or some such melding of the two. Alocasia is a valid genus of its own, which cannot be created by hybridizing other genera.

I don't know any of the history behind Alocasia 'Sarian' but we have some
growing here and they sure look like they have A. zebrina in them. How big
will they get? we planted small ones out this spring and they are up 3-4'
tall. They are very attractive but my favorite Alocasia is till A.
'Portora' and A. macrorrhiza 'Nigra'.
