RE: [Spam] Re: [Aroid-l] Alocasia tigrina vs zebrina


>From what I understand there are three species that
are all very similar. 

Those are:

Alocasia Zebrina

Alocasia Zebrina Reticulata

Alocasia Tigrina Superba

I hope this helps. It would help if you can provide a
picture of your plant in question.
