Dear Thom,

Steve Lucas should be interested in a GOOD photo of your A. reticulata`s bloom, so if poss., cut away a portion of the spathe to expose the entire spadix and its various structures in a close-up photo, and get a good photo of the entite plant AND one leaf blade.   If Steve uses your photos, he usually gives cridits to the photographer.   The yellowing then loss of older leaves on your Alocasia may be ''normal''.
Your second plant with the divided leaf blades is A. brancifolia, it used to be named Xenophya brancifolia, but was placed into synonmy with the genus Alocasia.

Good Growing,
