Alocasia Reticulate Giant

Alocasia 'Reticulate Giant' is another 2007 Alocasia hybrid success, one of two successful hybridizations done using Alocasia zebrina 'reticulata' as the pollen parent. While this one has Alocasia macrorrhizos 'Borneo Giant' as the ovule parent, the other cross used Alocasia odora as the ovule parent. So far, both hybrids are showing the characteristic reticulate leaf patterning.

These plants are not full grown, but the distinctive leaf shape and veination is already showing, along with the petiole mottling.

Below is another seedling from the cross, with a more robust-looking leaf. Sadly, these plants turned out to be too sensitive to temperatures below 50 degrees F.
