  Ginormous Xanthosoma Dr Croat??
From: Brian Williams pugturd at alltel.net> on 2006.08.26 at 13:09:50(14563)
I figured I would ask on aroid-L if Dr Croat could share his photo of a
huge Xanthosoma species. He showed me a photo last year at the aroid
show of a bluish looking Xanthosoma with ripples throughout the leaves.
I believe Croat you were in the pic under it. You told me the trunks
were as large as you legs. I have been thinking about the plant and was
wondering were the photo was taken and if you could post it up for all
to see or send me the photo and I can put it up on the ID website. From
what I could remember it looked to out do Alocasia robusta in size? It
maybe the largest aroids I have seen I would think Julius would be
interested in seeing this, extremely impressive plant. THANKS

Dear Brian:

If I can find that picture I will attach it here. I consider
this new and have been tentatively been calling it Xanthosoma
