Alocasia Collection in Malaysian Nursery (video)

I would like show what is sold in the local nursery in Malaysia.

Here in this Collection:
Alocasia Lauterbachiana,
Alocasia Black Velvet,
Alocasia Pink Dragon,
Alocasia Simpo / Lukiwan,
Alocasia Cuprea 'Red Secret',
Alocasia Cuprea 'Green Variant'
Alocasia Stingray

There are few tips that I would like to share when purchasing an Alocasia: 

1) Check and See - Inspect if there are any pest infection especially mealybug, scale insect or spidermites. 

2) Select the Alocasia which had not flowered, Often the plant will focus a lot of it's energy on the seedpod formation and will take all it's energy from the plant itself that can be detrimental for overall plant health.

 One off topic matter concerning Alocasia: 
I would advice not to purchase Alocasia seeds from Online Vendors - rather buy a real life plant or if possible their tubers. As these seeds are rarely fertile and have very high chance of being scammed. Do investigate and research on this matter before buying them online.
