  Re: [Aroid-l] Wintering Alocasia

You should find a cool place, 5-15*C (40-55*F). If the leaves resist, water the plants rarely, once a month to avoid the rhizome rotting, If they lose leaves, don't water them, they may fall into dormancy.

I don't know how to store Alocasia boa, but A. macrorrhizos 'Stingray' and Colocasia esculenta 'Ele Paio' (not Alocasia) rhizomes should survive. Of course if you find room for them all of them you can winter at home cultivating as normal pot plants (beware of spider mites).
