Dear Brian:

	If I can find that picture I will attach it here.  I consider
this new and have been tentatively been calling it Xanthosoma


I tried to find that image just now and did not see it. I will have to
do a search which takes too long at this time but I will try to get it
to you.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Ginormous Xanthosoma Dr Croat?? 

I figured I would ask on aroid-L if Dr Croat could share his photo of a 
huge Xanthosoma species. He showed me a photo last year at the aroid 
show of a bluish looking Xanthosoma with ripples throughout the leaves. 
I believe Croat you were in the pic under it. You told me the trunks 
were as large as you legs. I have been thinking about the plant and was 
wondering were the photo was taken and if you could post it up for all 
to see or send me the photo and I can put it up on the ID website.  From

what I could remember it looked to out do Alocasia robusta in size?  It 
maybe the largest aroids I have seen I would think Julius would be 
interested in seeing this, extremely impressive plant. THANKS
