Alocasia cuculatta as a water plant - hydroponics

espor(z5 PA)July 13, 2012

Has anyone grown the Alocasia cuculatta hydroponically? I took a small cutting and put it into a lucky bamboo pot (no holes) with pebbles and it seems to be adjusting. It is starting to send out its first leaf and I see a small root coming out of the side of the stem that is above the gravel level. Just wondering if anyone grew one this way and any comments would be appreciated.

I have a question relating to my post - I took a couple pictures of the Alocasia with an iPad and there doesn't seem to be a way to post them. I sent a message to the support group and they responded that they are currently working on this. However, I was wondering if anyone had a work-around that they have used with an iPad, in regards to posting a picture. Thanks
