Dear Gabe,
At this point I don't have anything to trade....except Lysichiton
americanum seeds, but I would love to have a piece of your Alocasia. I have
just purchased my first two Alocacias from a local grocery store. One looks
a lot like yours as far as the contrast of green leaf and white venation, but
the leaves are a bit more pointed and narrower in the anterior lobe. The
leaf area looks shrink-wraped around it's veins, and is shiny as though they
had been polished. The other plant has a silver look to it, and is almost a
flat green with the same white mid-veins, but also has tiny silver sub-veins
in between the main veins giving it a look, here and there, of turtle backs.
The leaves are shaped a bit different than my other one and different from
the ones you mentioned on line. In the store, these had only a sign up in
front of them saying ' African Mask' even though they are different. At any
rate, I would love to have another to add to my collection of two. I hope
I'm not too late. If you would like to try some Lysichiton americanum seeds,
let me know. Even if you are out of Alocacia corms, let me know and I will
send some to you.
I'm getting too awfully used to this begging stuff! Hopefully soon, I too
will have some pieces of something to share.
Thank you,
