Re: Alocasia araceae

I don't think it's to hard to picture (no psychedelics needed), I imagine if
Colocasia 'Black Magic' could be crossed with Alocasia (Colocasia?) 'Hilo
Beauty' it would look somewhat similar to the description. I know Alocasia
araceae is incorrect nomenclature, but that's how it was written in the
article. However, the improper nomenclature could be a typo or confusion on
the part of the writer. Anyway, is anyone familiar with Suwanee Loboratories
located in Florida? I can't find any reference to them online.
