    Plant F looks like it might be a Colocasia, aka taro

    Hi Chris,
    Thank you for helping me.
    Looking up Epiphyllum that seems to be the plant. It's from an orchard type family. I've had it since January this year. Not sure how long my friend had it or how old this plant is. I've never seen it bloom. Do you know when it might bloom? It also said this is an indoor plant. I've had it outside since January. It seems to be doing ok where it's at except it looks like its going all over the place. Should I bring it in or repot it?

    Hi Chris,
    Plant F looks like it might be a Colocasia, aka taro http://www.floridata.com/ref/c/colo_esc.cfm
    This really doesn't look like the plant I have maybe because mine is smaller then the pics I found of it. I haven't seen this plant bloom either.

    My neighbor says this could be a type of Philodendron but she has never seen one that looks like it has a corn stalk for a base.

    it would be most helpful if you could post a picture or two to this forum, your geocities page keeps exceeding the limit and fails to display repeatedly.
    If it is not Colocasia it could be Alocasia....

    I keep my Epiphyllums on our south-facing front porch all year round but out of direct sunlight. Starting late October I allow them to dry out completely until new growth appears the following April.
    During this time they are subjected to freezing temperatures. ANY moisture during these freezing temperature would kill them, but bonedry most of them not only survive, they thrive. (see attached pictures).
    It is the cold temperatures that induces bud-set.
    Hope this helps, good luck.

    it's difficult to tell from the small picture and without a flower, but I suggest you look at Alocasia here. It might be Alocasia gagaena 'California' or C. wentii, but I can't be sure.
