Title: Message
That plant on agristarts web site is a mistake.  The acual cross is Zebrina X Wenzelii not Zebrina x Wentii.  This is a mistake made by their web site guy.  If you look at their availibility you will see the right name for the plant.  I have grown this one from them and it is very similar to Tigina Superba.  I think the cross came from David Fell at Hawaiian Sunshine Nursery in Hawaii. He does alot of alocasia and anthurium breeding at his nursery and has come up with some weird crosses.

Does anyone have any idea who made the cross?  It sounds like a neat cross and looks cool. Will it survive the outdoors as well as wentii (hardy elephant ear). Agri-starts has it.  Albert
