Hi LariAnn,

I was wondering how your cross Alocasia x robudora is doing now a year later 2009 to 2010? The red stem that I bought from you is doing just fine.

When in doubt, do the cross!

All the Robudoras have gotten large enough to bloom several times which, unfortunately, has resulted in the plants not becoming as large as I imagined that they might become. They have proved to be as hardy as A. odora, based on the results from last winter's unseasonable cold days. In a way, that's a good thing, as if they all grew as large as robustas, I'd be crowded out of my property! I have so many other hybrids coming along that they need some room, too.

Glad to hear that the plant you got from me is doing well. I do have a quick question - did you ever give me a group of berries from a cross you did involving A. longiloba? My memory is foggy but I seem to think that the person who gave me the berries was named Kurt . . .

Well I'm glad their doing so well Smiling I think you might have me confused with
someone else with the berries from A. longiloba. Smiling I forgot to mention, that I had
repotted the black stem, and resued the soil for my tomato's this year. I now have about 20 or so little ones that decided to come up everywhere!. I also found one that
was just green and not black stemed. Must be a throwback. Some day when I have a job and money again, I'll have to get one of your robudoras.
