Re: Alocasia cucullata
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.
