  Re: Xanthosoma maculatum

Dear George,

IF poss., please post a photo! This 'Hilo Beauty' at various times has
been assigned to at least FOUR gerena that I know of, Colocasia, Xanthosoma,
Alocasia AND Caladium. I have been told that it has been known to flower
in cultivation, so this is yet another plea to anyone who grows this plant
to put any bloom it may produce in rubbing alcohol and get it (or at least a
GOOD photo of the entire bloom, AND then a cut-away showing the entire
spadix) to SOMEONE who can ID it to genus!

Good growing to all,
