Unfortunately 'Tropical Gardening' has its strange aspects. I am sure
that the origin of 'Abasia' may lie in sloppy proofreading. If you go to
the Ree Gardens section of their site at the address David gives, you
will see a weird introductory paragraph, and, under the picture of
crotons the statement "The genetic variations displayed by croutons are
always a welcome surprise. "
Anything goes ... ! Derek

This is one that perhaps Dewey knows about. Ree Gardens, owned by
and Marie Nock in Pinecrest, FL shows an aroid featured on the
Tropicalgardening.com website that they describe at Abasia borneo, but
suspiciously like some kind of Alocasia:
I'm not familiar with the genus Abasia. Can anyone check this out?
