Re: [Aroid-l] Alocasia tigrina vs zebrina

Its up to our friends in the Philippines who are able to observe live plants in the wild to decipher whether or not A. wenzelii and A. tigrina are different species from A. zebrina.

However, when I looked at these species from herbarium specimens 10 years ago, they seemed to me to intergrade in the wild. If that is the case, these horticultural forms under discussion are probably much better recognised as cultivars of A. zebrina. - JMO

The A. tigrina superba has much narrower elongated leaves than the zebrina and in addition, the leaf of the A. zebrina is of a thicker constitution than the A. tigrina superba.  I have a page on the A. zebrina, and one on my A. tigrina hybrid, which has retained much of the characteristics of the A. tigrina superba.  See the following:

Well, after the heated discussion on heaters in which I learned lots (thank you all), I thought I would ask another question, hopefully with a simple answer.


How can I separate Alocasia tigrina from A. zebrina? I have a nice plant about a meter tall, no flowers, labeled A. tigrina, but looks a lot like pictures I have seen recently of A. zebrina.  Any advice and literature citations would be helpful


Thanks heaps!
