RE: [Aroid-l] unknown Xanthostoma with purple coloring

Dear Eric,

To me, your purplish Xanthosoma is one of the many forms of Xanthosoma atrovirens. I have also seen a reddish form ("morada") and the regular blackish form.
The "Colocasia" excalibur is, for sure, a Caladium, probably from the group of Caladium picturatum. Julius, is this the one you brought from Trinidad?

Very best wishes,

Here is an Xanthostoma with purple coloring on the
petioles. It doesn't get as large as the common X.
sagitiifolium and it isn't X. violaceum. Is this
possibly X. maffafa?
