    They are all fantastic, Pixie. The green & black velvet ones really showed their velvety texture, too. Noticed one with red veins which also looks striking. Never realised there could be so many alocasias but, I guess, they are a large family. They would grow so well in the tropics too.

    Thank you for posting these images. Love them. :love:

    It was in this pic, Pixie. Did recognise your calathea zebrina as we did have one which I released into one of the the abandoned gardens in the yard here.

    The one is the photo you posted with the red stripes is a Caladium sp... I have several Caladiums but only a few have species names , there are hundreds of variations and different breeders just put names to them .They gov dormant in winter so a i loose quite a few to wildlife who like to eat the bulbs .

    Many thanks for that info, Pixie. It could be worth looking for, if I had more room, that is. :lol2:
