Thanks, for your input, Howard. I did get a response from Eric who lives in Orlando and works at their botanical gardens. Here is his input on what they are, which after doing a little double checking on the internet and looking at the plants a little closer, I think he is dead on except the 4th one. Lime Zinger is a little too chartruese for this one but still not sure what it is. I appreciate your input and hope the best for you with your ee's. BTW, I do have Elepio and love it. Can't wait to get it a little larger, as I just got mine a month or so ago...
|1. Xanthosoma violacea |
2. Alocasia plumbea
3. Alocasia wentii 'Variegata'
4. maybe A. macrorrhizos or A. odora ?
