Does anyone here grow Adelonema yanamonoensis? I'm not sure if that is the correct accepted name for the species but I can't find much about it online, except for a couple resources. It's an interesting plant I tip my hat to you.

This picture is not mine but from a website I found.

Adelomena and Homalomena are synonymous. Some people do grow some of the Homalomenas. I personally have never seen any 'in the flesh'. They come up for sale every now and then usually expensive

That's debated, DNA analysis in research from 2016 "supports resurrection of the genus Adelonema for Neotropical species currently assigned to Homalomena". You can download the paper here: https://www.researchgate.net/p... That paper is also where the species Adelonema yanamonoensis was first described and where emmapb's image is from. Since it's such a newly described species, it's probably very hard to find. There's one in Munich, Germany: http://www.aroidpictures.fr/GE...

In the Netherlands at least you can occasionally find Homalomena rubescens 'Maggy' and they're quite cheap. It's an easy houseplant; it's faster growing and less susceptible to spider mites than Alocasia. Never saw any other Homalomena or Adelomena though.

I had not read that! This is a Genus I have no real experience with. Every once in a while I will see a collector offering some of these for sale on auction sites but have never been tempted.

Oww.. what a plant... the only Adelonemas I have is A crinipes, I believes yanamonoensis will be very hard to find

I grow it on regular soil, I add some rice husk to provide a more airy soil, add some garden compost. I add bit of slow release fertilizer (Osmocote), and recently I also add bit insecticide-nematicide to the potting soil (Carbofuran pellets), as I am lazy on taking care of plants, and I saw too many bugs on my plants, so I need to take bit control... I use to avoid pesticide, if possible, but I guess in pots it's OK, and this is only for ornamental plants.
Sorry the picture is just a small plant, as it was already splitted for sale, and I only keep one for me.

I thinks this one is not too much demanding compared to some other aroids.

Thank you @tofitropic - that was very helpful! I managed to get an A.yanamonoensis apparently... but it looks so similar to the A. crinipes, I'm not so sure!

It does have posterior lobes that flare outwards upon further inspection. Your A. crinipes is beautiful Drooling

So weird after this message a friend of mine was in SO FL over last weekend and bought a Homalomena 'Selby'. He said there is enough that he can share it with me. So I am going to go from never having one to suddenly having one soon!

I will, I had to look it up I had never seen one. Then I went over to his place to pick up an orchid he bought me as a gift for taking care of his plants while they were gone and saw it in person, its really quite lovely
