  [Aroid-l] tall Alocasia 'Calidora' with a "pseudotrunk"
From: lbmkjm at yahoo.com (brian lee) on 2008.06.25 at 17:25:35(17961)
Dear Eric and Julius,


I have noticed the same thing in Hawaii...but, I did not know why these things got so large and then declined...I assumed it was part of their natural history...not so much a horticultural issue. Although we also have nematodes and that loomed in my mind.

Add Alocasia'Sarian', to the large pseudotrunk Alocasia that get large and fall over and decline. I will mound leaf litter on my other plants and see how that works.

Thanks Julius for great advice...again.
