  Re: [Aroid-l] Alocasia 'Californica'

Hi Marek,
I'm surprised this question has come up from so far away since I thought it
was just a local problem. A. gageana is a popular nursery plant sold as
Colocasia "California" in Texas. Perhaps someone that realized it wasn't a
Colocasia adapted and started calling it Alocasia "California"? I can't
find anydifference between the Colocasia (Alocasia) "California" sold in
Texas and the species A. gageana sold in Florida. This is a little on the
nutty side. Do you know what I mean?
