  Alocasia Robusta
From: Brian Williams pugturd at alltel.net> on 2003.11.21 at 15:34:08(10844)
I asked Malesiana Tropicals a few years ago to find Alocasia Robusta and
to offer it. I had a picture form Dewey of a man holding a leaf that
towered over him. The leaf about 10 to 12 ft tall was monsterous. I
contacted them and begged for them to produce the plant. Two years later
they had them. Was very glad it all worked out.

Hi Brian

Pleased that it was a success. Our established nursery stocks of A. robsuta
are now beginning to produce seed reliably regularly such that we will very
soon be able to offer large quantities of young plants of the Sarawak form
(purple-flushed petioles, spathe with the lower part tubular white and the
spathe limb violet, spadix smelling of decomposing beef extract) of A.

We finally have a limited amount of Alocasia Robustas available.
This is your chance to grow the largest undivided leaf in the world. The leaf
alone will top out at approximately 12 ft long x 6 ft wide in ideal
