Re: alocasia 'san fernando gabi'

Hi Dany,

FYI, we also have a 'san fernando gabi' here in the Philippines and it is 
none other than the common Xanthosoma. It is widely cultivated for its 
edible tuber. As I understand, it is introduced and has naturalized very 
well here. It definitely is not an Alocasia.

I wonder if they are the same plant and only mis-named.
