Alocasia x portora- how big for you in zone 5?
I have been assured that what I have is the real thing from two different sources. So I'm quite surprised that now a few years later it is still 1/4 the size of my odora.
My odora is also the same age.
I'm thinking they are both happy. odora bloomed and had 2 pups-and portora produced 6 pups. The pups were removed to encourage large growth and still 2 years later- it's 16 inches tall to 24" depending on the season. It's very slow growing compaired to my other alocasia and colocasia.
Does anyone in a cold zone have this (as a houseplant for winter) and outside for summer- and it so. how big is this for you?
Has anyone tried letting it go barebulb dormant for a long winter? Did it do ok?
I'm thinking it just hates living here...
