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.
