Re: Alocasia cucullata

Dear all,

     Has anyone ever seen Alocasia cucullata in fruit? I am trying to
     ascertain whether it is female-fertile. The clone we have growing at
     RBG Sydney has no fertile female flowers on any spadix - just
     staminodes, but I do not yet know whether this is universal. Alocasia
     cucullata does not seem to occur wild anywhere, and I am beginning to
     suspect that it may be a mutant cultigen, possibly derived from A.
     odora, but that is a wild guess at present.

     Alistair Hay
