Alocasia x nyctedora
The group of plants illustrated includes just two of the total number of seedlings we obtained from this cross. Some of the plants had darker coloration or mottling on the petioles, while others, such as those in the photo, have green petioles. So far, only one of the plants has reached blooming maturity, but they are all easier to grow than A. nycteris.
One characteristic these plants do seem to have acquired, though is a tendency to go dormant when temperatures get cool (40s F to low 70s F). At first, growth slows, but after extended exposure to lower temperatures, the roots disintegrate and the tops begin dying back. The plant recovers quickly when warm temperatures return, however.
For the record, Alocasia nycteris is the plant that was formerly known as Alocasia advincula "Batwing".
