[Aroid-l] propagation of Alocasia robusta from seeds

A community friend begged me to post an inquiry. I hope that one of those specialists in this net could answer his question.

Dear members,

<> I have to requested help about the propagation of Alocasia robusta from seeds. I'd received the seeds some time ago. When they arrived some fungi grew on the humid seeds. After removing and treating the seeds with a fungicide I planted them into sterilized coco peat-Perlite mix (1:1) and kept them slightly humid at 20-25°C. After two weeks all of the seeds were rotted. Amorphophallus seeds from the same source where kept under the same conditions and germinated quite well. I would like to try it again with A. robusta. But beforehand I would like to know if someone here has made experiences in germinating Alocasia seeds. Is it at all possible? If yes, what are the perfect conditions for successful germination? Where can I get good quality seeds? I had mine from http://www.borneo-palm-seed.com  

Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

<>Best regards
