Subject: [Aroid-l] Alocasia 'Black Magic'
have bought a small Alocasia with a trade name 'Black Magic'.
is very small now, the largest leaf blade is 14 cm.
append photos of this plant taken with and without flashlight.
photographed with flash the leaf surface reflects red.
also reflects red when it is disposed to direct sunlight.
are red cells(?) not visible under low light.
adaxial leaf surface is very dark green, almost black,
abaxial is maroon brown, petioles are light brown
lighter longitudinal dots 1x2 mm.
peltate leaf base wraps the petiole.
you think it is a species?
attach photos taken using various lighting.
