Re: unknown Alocasia
This is interesting, Steve Lucas sent me the same photographs a few
days back. My reply to him was:
It looks to be a another manifestation of macrorrhizos
(spadix appendix not wider than the male flower zone, spathe limb attenuate and
not fornicate, sinus without leaf tissue.

Subject: [Aroid-l] unknown Alocasia
this is an
Alocasia sp. (I think) that some people grow together with A. odora. It seems
not to be of horticultural origin, but probably brought by someone on a trip
ages ago, since it can be found in old ladies houses.
resembles A. odora, however it grows tall (with a trunk) faster, it's not as
hardy (in Athens, Greece), and it's "finer" in appearance. Leaves
rarely exceed 60cm in length (2 feet).
I would be
gratefull if anyone knows what it is.
