Title: Message
Please delineate what the initials "EA" stand for. Is that a store name or a country abbreviation or something else altogether?

Subject: [Aroid-l] Alocasia Black Polly

Dear All,
Adding to the recent discussion of Alocasia Amazonica 
including Black Polly I have found something I haven't yet
The Black Polly plants that I have had for at least a couple of
years are the ones EA has sold with that tag that look a lot like
Amazonica only a little more compact blade and blacker face.
This week at a local greenhouse I found that they had some
there tagged "Black Polly" that were nothing like the EA one.
It was more like a lauterbachii with a very dark cast to it.
Has anyone seen this new appearance in the trade? 
EA stopped selling Amazonica everywhere and now you may be
hard-pressed to find one at all in any box store.  Only the blacker
one, now someone has co opted the name for yet another plant.
I just call them "trade names".
