Does anyone know where I can obtain a few of these plants? Seems to be an uncommon variety.

Thanks,

I bought mine at Home Depot last year insularway. I also noticed it at a local grocery store. What was readily available last year might not be this year, but that would be my first target. It's a beautiful but finicky Alocasia up in the northeast. We have many members from Florida so, depending upon your location, someone should be able to help.

Our Lowe's had them earlier this spring. Jay ask the Garden Manager at your Lowe's or Home Depot if they can order it for you. I think it was Monrovia that was the supplier
God gave us wings. He just called them horses

I called Lowes, Home Depot, Monrovia, Nature's Way, & Costa, none of which have any kapit avail. I don't know if its a seasonal thing or??

Anyone in FL willing to sell me one?!

Thanks for the replies.
