If this is really A.veitchii, then $20 is not too bad, since this species
does not seem to be available anywhere.  Re: Alocasia reversa, maybe you
should cont yourself lucky, since mine has rotted within a week, despite
being placed in the same environment as everything else from that
shipment.  A. sinuata croaked as well.

I am finding more and more that alocasias shipped in a non-dormant state
seem to expire at a much higher rate than anything else, unless they had
all foliage cut off before the shipment and are reasonably large to start
with.  Has anyone else had a similar disappointing experience?
