Agristarts is tissue culturing the Alocasia x Portidora  but I think the others
are mispellings or mispronunciations of the same. Mr. Garner bred a lot of
hybrids back in  the 80's but have not seen any other one tissue cultured
as much
as his A. x Portidora. (portei x odora). I think he is still around but not
active with Aroid society, I think he was working for Tru-Green Chemlawn in
branch in the Computer/ accounting Dept.
