  Mystery Alocasia

Hi all,

I'm sending this out in hopes of learning more about the
Alocasia I have depicted at the tollowing link:


I have seen one specimen of this plant in the south
Florida area and other than having seen it, and the little information about it
on the page, I know nothing else about it.

Does anyone have any more details about the origin of this

Hi LariAnn

Looks like Alocasia x portodora to me.

Hello Pete and LariAnn,

My thoughts exactly, I thought it might be the result of LariAnn`s creation,
A. 'portadora', crossed w/ an 'amazonica', or back-crossed to one of the
'good' species that have the light veins, perhaps A. sanderiana or somesuch.
I know little about the genus, it is just a 'gut' feeling, Pete is one of
the experts!
Good Growing, all.
