grabmebymyhandle(6 Kentucky)October 23, 2012

I posted in the plant EX but havent gotten the responses i really want, cuz i want some new amorphs really, I would settle for most any bulb producing aroid I dont have.

What i have to offer is

*Abundant Alocasias*

*odora* i have a few ready to chop the leaves off, unpot and ship

*frydek* about 12 good quarter sized bulbils available, the rest ill keep. What ever hasnt been traded for in about a week will be plated for next year.

*Copious Colocasias*

*Violet stem* aslo now being sold as proven selections *Heart of the Jungle* Gets big if planted out, to 8 ft nice velvety green leaf, dark purple stem, VIGOROUS, even invasive if left unchecked in tropical areas, it produces runners to 8 feet, blooms regularly

The only Alocasias I seem to be able to do any good with are the "Jewels", like reginula, melo, "Poly", cuphrea (?), etc., or some of those that grow in water or semi-immersed, like cucullata. The others get their tubers eaten away by something that I've never been able to identify. I suspect a fungus or bacterium.
