Hi everyone,


So what was the earliest place and time (and where) that this appeared in print with a picture or description? Does this question sound familiar? It is what I (and anyone willing to help me) will be asking a lot as I try to get the IAS undertaking to run a cultivar registration program off the ground. Just think, if the cultivar epithet (name) can be established in this way, it will be possible to look it up on Aroid-l in the future.


Living in hope. Derek

This photo:

has been for a long time in the ID Center.

All the suggestions I got were identical -

that this is a variety or a cultivar of Alocasia macrorrhizos.

Any photo of an inflorescence would be appreciated.

Hi Listers,

I seem to recall that late last year there was a reference to Alocasia 'Stingray' (see image here: http://www.centralfloridafarms.com/alocasia-stingray.htm [nb: not my image or website] ), but I can't find anything in the archive search. Someone may be able to answer my query anyway, and that is does anyone know what species this is considered to be a form of?

With thanks in anticipation,

RBG Melbourne, Australia
(which has had 2mm of rain since Christmas, 3 consecutive days over 45C in Feb, and 1 record buster at 47C)
