Dear Thom,

Steve Lucas should be interested in a GOOD photo of your A. reticulata`s bloom, so if poss., cut away a portion of the spathe to expose the entire spadix and its various structures in a close-up photo, and get a good photo of the entite plant AND one leaf blade. If Steve uses your photos, he usually gives cridits to the photographer. The yellowing then loss of older leaves on your Alocasia may be ''normal''.
Your second plant with the divided leaf blades is A. brancifolia, it used to be named Xenophya brancifolia, but was placed into synonmy with the genus Alocasia.

Good Growing,

I think the photos 0339-0342 show Alocasia zebrina.
The 0338 I have no idea, rather not Alocasia.

Julius, thank you ever so much! I must admit I do not know what
happened when I photographed that plant in my bathroom..... Having my
BFA in photography, but using the camera on my iPhone may have
something to do with that.
The spathe has now rolled back to completely expose the spadix....
Also I have another flower coming... So if someone wants pics, let me

Thom, the smaller Alocasia is surely A.brancifolia a tropical species from Moluccas and New Guinea.Michael Pascall,> the second, smaller alocasia I have no clue as to who it is, but > absolutely love the amorpho-like markings on it!!> > Thanxxx, Thom> > > > > > > > > > > > > >

Steve, I have 2 more buds on that plant, so when they open I will get
those shots for your website.
