One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Alocasia portadora....things are starting to happen in Brad's tropical greenhouse
I don't know if this is photoperiodically mediated or not. I remember first working in a greenhouse with tropicals and being impressed that the Spathiphyllums and Citrus initiated bud formation immediately after the days began to get longer. Some tropical are ruled by daylength, more, I think, by moisture.
