  Alocasia cormels
From: CDANIELLE <CDANIELLE at prodigy.net> on 1997.09.21 at 23:56:42(1288)
Hello all,
I just repotted my Alocasia micholitziana 'Frydek' (no not the
variegated one) and have a few cormels from it to give or hopefully
trade. I have a few questions about this plant so please read on even if
your not interested in getting one.

I'm only calling it A. Frydek because it looks exactly like a picture on
Lester Kallus's web page which he has labled so, the picture's URL is
http://www.i2.i-2000.com/~lkallus/aroids/micheli.htm Another picture of
a very similar looking plant can be seen at (Krzysztof Kozminski's pic)
http://ng.netgate.net/~kk/Araceae/Alocasia/Green_Velvet.html this one is
labled A. 'Green Velvet'. Mine was only labled A. micholitziana, but I'm
told it's not and I've seen pictures that seem to confirm that it isn't.
What should I call it?

Would it be best to wait to send the cormels until it gets warmer (the
nights are getting pretty cold around here). Am I corect in calling the
tuber-like organs cormels?

Note: this is a very old post, so no reply function is available.
