Ooooohhh...lucky you....try using the spelling Frydek.....There's controversy about the name of the plant. Some insist that it's Alocasia micholitziana. Others call it micholitziana "Frydek" and yet others insist it's just Alocasia "Frydek". I found conflicting information and conflicting photos, too! So, I'll leave the search up to you....I did a search on and got LOTS of info.....

I can find Alocasia on the internet but not
: anything related to the word Fridek. Anyone have any idea with it means and how the plant should be taken care of. I now have it in the house but I know I can plant it outside, shade or sun? Can't I bring it in for the winter and put back out for the summer.
: Thanks!!!!
