Yes I was sure that the plant nr 1 isn't Colocasia gigantea but Xanthosoma sagittifolium. I had no courage to write it.
I see that the tribes Colocasieae and Caladieae need a revision
Almost everybody knows that the never blooming Alocasia 'Hilo Beauty' is probably a Xanthosoma or Caladium.

The 'thing' is off course interesant,and seem to have both
part of colocasia gigantea and alocasia cuculata....
But i don't think that the last pic(but pic number 1) is colocasia gigantea.Colocasia have more round leaves,in
all plants that i know.This plant seem more a xanthosoma
for me.And if i know that some cross were made between colocasia and alocasia,i don't think that it could be possible between xanthosoma and alocasia.Mr Hay?Mr Boyce?What are thinking the experts?

Hi,
 
I thought this might be of interest to some of you Aroiders out there, so I thought I would share these images of something I found growing in the yard, and the two plants I suspect this new plant came from.

In our yard, here on Oahu, we have a large patch of Colocasia gigantea growing somewhat wild and we also have two old Alocasia cuculata 'shrubs'.

While clearing out some white ginger that was taking over, I came upon a small plant of something that was definitely different appearing from anything else in the yard.  I cleared around it and let it grow. 

It's now been about 8 months since this discovery and it is turning out to be a really interesting plant.

The blades are developing an interesting pucker between the veins.  This characteristic is becoming more pronounced with each new blade as they harden off.

I'll be interested in seeing if it obtains the proportions of the Colocasia gigantea.

My only explanation for this plant is that it must be a natural hybrid of the two.

Does anyone know if  Alocasia cuculata been crossed with Colocasia gigantea intentionally before?  and what do you call an Alocasia X Colocasia?

Thanks,  Windy Aubrey
