have several here in Hawai’i, that fit all the descriptions
(including the glandular punctuates), and some are setting seed right
now. Surprisingly, I picked them up at the island Lowe’s Hardware in
Kona, fairly large ones (leaves 2’ long) for less than $15 apiece. The
local grower is Novelty Greens, in Hilo.

the true A. hookeri occurs on Trinidad. This is according to what the
Richard Howard told me when we were collecting in Grenada together. He
published the Flora of the Lesser Antilles. The species we have in
miles to the north, is A. wildenovii I believe, and I have never seen
hookeri growing here.
not be difficult to obtain seeds and seedlings of A. hookeri in
the airline charges a ridiculous amount to get there from Grenada.
