  Alocasia / Colocasia questions
From: Piabinha at aol.com on 2002.03.14 at 11:54:16(8287)
1) Alocasia sedenii - is this a hybrid of species?

2) Colocasia - although i'm growing a few Alocasia indoors, i'm having problems cultivating Colocasias. the last one i got just rotted... now, i thought these plants grew in swamps and ponds. how is it possible they rot so easily?

thanks for your reply, julius, but i have never kept my Colo. sitting in water. i'm not sure why they are so finicky, they seem to be so prevalent everywhere... :-)

Hello Again,

I think you might have misunderstood my posting, I
believe that they may NEED to sit in a saucer of water (but ONLY as I have
detailed) and need LOTS of light!

Best Wishes,

Julius
