Not ignoring this, but all I have is Colocasia esculenta...

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.
