Thanks for this great shot of the tuber just starting. I don't have A. macro. and really like getting a better idea of how these things grow. If you ever have any dormant tuber photos that would be helpful as well.

Hi Evan,

I just ordered this one from Mary's Garden Patch after reading Trish's recent review: http://garden.org/ideas/view/T...

I should have taken a photo of the bulb before I planted it!!

Yes indeed it was Humongous!! Click on the link above to Trish's article ... she shows a photo of the Alocasia macrorrhizos bulb from her order. The one I got was just as large!
