  [Aroid-l] tall Alocasia 'Calidora' with a "pseudotrunk"

Julius and Eric,

Some of the A. macrorrhizos I encountered in habitat 2 years ago were
fallen while others were still upright. They were on a slope up a
hill. The area was quite wet, being along a water run-off. I think
the fallen ones lost their foothold, maybe after a flashflood, as
shown in the first attached picture. Some of the fallen ones grew to
be quite big after their fall. The 2nd attached picture shows a clump
of trunks wedged together at the bottom, thus supporting each other
and staying upright.
