Dear Marcus,

Greetings!
As Marek says, Alocasia X 'Amazonica' is a hybrid. One parent is A. sanderiana, and Marek says the other was A. longiloba. One thing for certain, it was created MANY years ago in Miami, Florida by a gentleman who used to be a mail-man, he loved aroids and he owned a plant Nursery which he named 'Amazon Nursery', he then named the hybrid in honor of his plant nursery. John Banta of Alva, Florida knew this gentleman and can suppy his name and perhaps confirm the parentage of this popular plant to us.
Pete Boyce may be able to ID the Raphidophora for you if he is on line.
Good Growing,

Julius
WPB,
FLORIDA

Dear friends,
Is this species Alocasia sanderiana or the hybrid Alocasia X Amazonica?
Another doubt, does the species exist A. Amazonica ? Do I get to see pictures?
thank you
