  [Aroid-l] New Dark Alocasia
From: LARIANN GARNER <AROIDIAN at worldnet.att.net> on 2007.05.26 at 21:16:57(15723)
Fellow Aroiders,

I found this Alocasia at a mom n'pop nursery in south Florida; I had
gone there because they seemed to have a lot of Colocasias and
Alocasias. This plant stopped me in my tracks, and of course I got one
for my work at Aroidia. Has anyone ever seen this plant or know the
species? I'm confident it is not Alocasia plumbea Nigra, or the one
people are calling "Jurassic Dark", which is supposed to be a variety of
Alocasia plumbea Nigra.

I think that it is a chimeric variegant of Alocasia sarawakensis, based
on morphological similarities. Once I see it bloom, I will know for sure.

Here's the link:
