Identification of Alocasia and Colocasia

asagaoman(9a)January 30, 2014

Please let me know if this ID information is correct.

Alocasia / stem attaches at edge of leaf

Colocasia / stem attaches in center of leaf

Attached alocasia pic seems to affirm this.

Jewel Alocasias (reginula, melo, etc.,) also have petioles joining the leaf blade at the centre (or actually just off centre).
