  [Aroid-l] Growing Alocasia-help to keep the from rotting
From: hcward416 at comcast.net> on 2005.07.09 at 11:08:54(13163)
I have just become very interested in
growing Alocasia. Live in zone 8a so must winter in gh. Having trouble with them
rotting at soil level.I grow a large number of different Xanthosoma and
Colocasia and have no trouble with them. Need advice on appropriate soil
and growing methods of the Alocasia. The growing mix I use has a lot of
peat, little sand, and small amount of bark. I tried adding a lot of
perlite and sand to the mix. Do I need to have a fungicide spraying program
with them. If so, what is the best fungicide to use.
Thank you,
