    initially my attention was caught to the dark flower buds behind the leaves on the upper left corner of the pic and i was puzzled. hahahaha,,,,,,focusing on the wrong part of the pic, nice healthy plant!!

    I love these plants they are my favorite to work with. I cried when our alocasia amazonicas had a spider mite outbreak and I had to see them thrown away (not by me of course). It brightens my day to see such a healthy specimen. Keep up the good work.

    In Florida, those houseplants can get rather large. The first time I saw a giant vine of one of my houseplants I was amazed. Your smaller flower is much cuter than the full size down here. Very very cute! The leaves themselves are gorgeous as well...
