[Aroid-l] Fw: Alocasia ID

> Hi Brian,
> This is Alocasia hypnosa, a species from limestone in N. Thailand, N. Lao 
> PDR and SW China (from the latter it was described a few years ago). It is 
> an interesting species in that it is deciduous in nature and also in that 
> it produces very long stolons tipped with bulbils that grw into new 
> plants. In the wild A. hypnosa grows in humus-filled pockets in almost 
> vertical limestone cliffs and the long stolons appear to have evolved in 
> order for the plant to colonize new places on the cliff. Another 
> interesting point is that the spathe limb is rich red-pink.
> Very best
