  [Aroid-l] alocasia reticulata? in flower and mystery guest alocasia
From: sparky4114 at mac.com (Thom Powell) on 2008.04.02 at 13:28:16(17291)

Hello All, I work in a high end retail garden center and we got in
some beautiful alocasias that came in marked asst. exotic alocasias.
I was thinking the larger one is reticulata (due to the discussion on
here in early March). But it's aprox. 5 ft. tall and the flower
smells like a fresh newspaper! the scent fills my plant room. I
noticed it opened last night when I came home from work (close to
7pm) and there was no fragrance... this morning it is very
fragrant....we'll see how it does the rest of the day (seeing how I
have the day off today). Also does anyone know what is going on with
the under side of the older leaves ?(tried to get a pic of it)

the second, smaller alocasia I have no clue as to who it is, but
absolutely love the amorpho-like markings on it!!

Thanxxx, Thom
