Alocasia zebrina



Published in 1863, Alocasia zebrina (alo-CAY-see-ee) is exclusively found (endemic) to a single island in the Philippines. The reticulated leaf form which has a pattern on the leaf blades appears to be an unusual variation of the species that has not been found in nature.

Alocasia zebrina reticulata form simply possesses the unusual leaf reticulation with a more elongated blade shape with green and brown stripped petioles. The foliage is very narrow and sharply arrowhead or hastate shaped. Each leaf is a dark blue green with an odd coloration effect commonly called reticulated.

Alocasia zebrina Tigrina also demonstrates the elongated leaf blade. As the blades of the reticulated variation mature the pattern fades until it is barely noticeable.

  The species Alocasia zebrina is found on the island of Luzon in primary rain forests at elevations of 100 to 400 meters (330 to 1,300 feet). A. zebrina is typically found in nature growing in wet humus covered soil adjacent to boulders in the shade of the forest.

Most species are totally intolerant of frost and do best when grown in a warm, humid climate with moist, humus-rich soil and ample feeding. They thrive in the close atmosphere of a warm greenhouse. Large-leafed rhizomatous and tuberous perennials in this genus from tropical southern and Southeast Asia. They have heart-shaped to arrowhead-shaped leaves from 8"-36" long depending on the species. The leaves are often long-stemmed with distinctive red or purple markings. The long-stemmed arum-like flowers, often obscured by the foliage, are not very showy.

            We accept online payments only through PayPal, Cash payments are only acceptable for in-person payments and cash-on-delivery (COD). Cash payment can not be sent through the mail.

      Please only one Paypal payment. SO THE COMBINED SHIPPING RULE WILL CAN BE USED. Multiple paypal payments are NOT eligible for discounts.

        We will ship once a week - ON or BEFORE WEDNESDAYS, because of the special stamps needed to ship plants and cuttings to you.  This can only be done at the Dept. of Agriculture.  If payments are not met before that MONDAY, your items will be shipped the following week and lose the combined discount opportunity.

         Non-paying bidders may receive negative feedback and will be reported as an unpaid item to eBay.



INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING is not included in this offer.  


        We will combine shipping for auctions won on the same week paid with same paypal payment.

   This policy is good for all items bought and paid for in the week ending MONDAY.

Payment must be received within 7 days of the auction ending.

Combined Discounts Won Auctions

     For 2-3 winning auctions, the combined discount is 10% of the total Shipping and Handling charges. For 4-7 winning auctions, the combined discount is 20% of the total Shipping and Handling charges. For 7+ winning auctions, the combined discount is 30% of the total Shipping and Handling charges.

         As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the discount (i.e.: additional item $3.61). My stores' combined shipping is built in for same items rather than a varied selection. Includes postage, USDA certification and inspection, proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery. I can’t really change any of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it gets hard to discount much as each different species requires it's own prep & packing, then at USDA each has to be unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires me to clean and prepare every last piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. It takes my wife and I, a day to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if you can understand.

Rare Palm Seeds

Fresh Highest Quality

         Seller warrants seed to be of the variety and quantity advertised. Safe delivery is guaranteed and seeds lost or damaged during shipment will be replaced at seller's expense. Claims must be made within 7 days of shipment. All other replacements, refunds, returns and exchanges will be made at the sole discretion of the seller.

  Seed is a live product which depends on many important related grower skills such as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, irrigation, proper use of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and reasonable weather conditions during the growing period. Germination is affected by such factors as temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media. These factors are totally out of the seller's control and are the buyer's responsibility and risk. Consequentially, the seller cannot unconditionally guarantee seed to perform properly regardless of conditions or the buyer's methods or mistakes.
