Bette Waterbury Tracking down the elusive Philodendron "Santa Leopoldina" (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Probably the most controversial, sought after aroid by collectors - and the most elusive - is Philodendron "Santa Leopoldina." Determined to obtain it, my favorite collecting buddy Dorothy Henkle and Jean Pasko from California and I set out for Brazil in May.

Father Eugene Middendorf The remarkable shooting idioblasts
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: The ejection of sharp, needlelike crystals from specialized spindleshaped cells of the plant Dieffenbachia is a phenomenon that deserves more attention from biology teachers and, perhaps researchers. Students are fascinated when they see these distinctive cells (idioblasts) shoot out needle after needle like some kind of automatic microscopic blowgun. But the performance and structure of these achlorophyllous cells should be used for more than just laboratory entertainment.

Mark D. Moffler A commentary on the anatomy of a neotropical species of Homalomena (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: The striking and varied foliage pattern in aroids is one of the reasons we collect these fascinating plants_ While ' we all appreciate the elegance of aroids, few people have the opportunity to see the structural beauty at the microscopic level. I will briefly discuss several anatomical features of a neotropical species of Homalomena c.f_ peltata.

 ABSTRACT: Differentiating Gonatanthus and Remusatia with inflorescences is a snap. In Gonatanthus the ovules are basal and the spathe is erect, whitish and 5-6 inches long. In Remusatia the ovules are parietal and the spathe is deflexed, yellow and only 3 inches long, Also Remusatia flowers before or with the new leaves and Gonatanthus flowers after the leaves are well developed.

John Banta What's in a name?
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: Plant breeders often assign a name to a particular plant due to the requirements of record keeping. For instance, a hybrid between A. forgetii and A. magnificum might become "magetii" in the breeder's stud book. A name derived by a contraction of the parent's names often helps to remind growers of its origin. I wonder how Bob McColley referred to his hybrids? What is that hybrid going to be named and who shall decide? Where are the people who care about "what's in a name?"

G. Hennen The basics of plant tissue culture (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Interest in plant tissue culture has increased in the past ten years in both the scientific and practical horticultural disciplines. Plant propagation by tissue culture has been enthusiastically accepted by nurserymen and avid hobbyists as evidenced by at least five large commercial laboratories in Florida alone, and as many as 200 worldwide. This article will attempt to explain some of the science, culture techniques, misconceptions and mysteries of plant tissue culture.

This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: Our format is to write and make multiple copies of a letter and send it simultaneously to all other participants. We all try to clip something from a newspaper, catalog , or magazine, that others might be in- . terested in. We exchange photo. graphs and sometimes exchange plants. Every two months I write my letter and, in the time interval, receive six other letters. Often we supplement the round robin letter with additional letters and telephone calls.

Thomas B. Croat Heinrich Gustav Adolph Engler
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: It's difficult to contemplate aroids without thinking of the amazing productivity of Adolph Engler. Aside from H. C. Schott (Aroideana, Vol. 1 [3]), no other worker is so clearly association with the aroid family. His active writing on Araceae spanned 42 years beginning in 1878 with the publication of the Araceae of Brazil in Martius' Flora Brasiliensis and ending 1920 with the completion of a monographic treatment of the entire aroid family. The latter work published in Das Pflanzenreich was the last comprehensive treatment of the family. All together it describes about 1,800 species in 108 genera. The work, though now out of date, still stands as a monument to his untiring efforts.

This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: Recent discoveries of new types of Aglaonema with unusual foliar variegation patterns and petiole colorations have increased the breeding potential for this genus. Potential for development of exciting new hybrids has never been greater. For such promise to be realized, however, it is necessary to be able to induce simultaneous flowering of different Aglaonema species and cultivars.

Lawrence E. Garner Hybridizing alocasias for the landscape (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: For many plant fanciers, the image of tropical lushness with its abundant humidity and dense exotic vegetation, is conveyed vividly by the aroids known as Alocasias. However, the widespread enjoyment of them by gardeners and plant enthusiasts has been significantly hindered by the tenderness and apparent fussiness of the more desirable species. As plant breeders, therefore, we saw a need for the development of hardier, more interesting alocasias with ability to withstand ordinary abuse as well as outdoor growing conditions, at least in southern Florida and California. The recognition of this need, along with a desire to learn more about the alocasias as a genus, were the main objectives of the work described herein.

Sara Oldfield Trade in endangered species
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: Two species of another aroid genus are already included in Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). This is an international agreement drawn up to prevent over-exploitation of species. Appendix I listing means that under the national legislation of over 80 countries which have ratified the convention, the import or export of wildtaken plants for commercial purposes is banned. Alocasia sanderiana and Alocasia zebrina are included in Appendix I because overcollecting in the past has led to these two endemics of the Philippines becoming endangered in the wild.

 ABSTRACT: In order to conduct a successful hybridization with Anlhurium it is necessary to have some understanding of the inter-relationships among different species of Anlhurium. This paper will introduce the sectional classification of the genus to you and will detail some examples of inter-sectional crosses that have proven successful. Others, where no success has yet been achieved, will also be reported.

F. D. Ghani Ornamental and edible aroids of peninsular Malaysia (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Most aroids are widely distributed in the tropics and subtropics with a few species in temperate regions. The majority occur in the countries of South East Asia, South and Central America, Africa and the West Indies. The family has a total of 110 genera and ca. 2500 species (Croat, 1979), 92% of which are in South East Asia and Central and South America. In Malaysia alone there are 23 native genera and about 120 species (Henderson, 1954).

Thomas B. Croat The origin of Anthurium leuconeurum
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: The name Anthurium leuconeurum has been in use by horticulturists since 1862 when a plant, believed to have been collected in southern Mexico by Auguste Boniface Ghiesbrecht, was described by the French botanist Charles Lemaire. The plant apparently flourished in European botanical garden hothouse collections for a period of about seven decades. A number of herbarium collections were prepared and placed in herbaria at Kew Gardens, Geneva, Paris and elsewhere; most of these collections were made before 1895. The last such herbarium collection I've seen was prepared in 1935 at the University of Coimbra, Portugal, by L. W. Carrisso and deposited at the Kew Herbarium.

R. J. Henny, W. C. Fooshee Flowering of Aglaonema with gibberellic acid (GA3) A follow up report
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: As a routine part of our foliage breeding program, we treated several plants with 250 ppm GA3 (our normal rate) on November 10, 1982. The results were phenomenal! Treated plants had open flowers in mid-April and continued to produce new blossoms into July_ Some plants, growing in 8-inch pots with 3-4 stems produced upwards of 50 inflorescences during this t ime (Figures 1 [, 2). As in previous studies, flowers were normal in appearance and fertile. In addition, unrelated species and cultivars again flowered simultaneously enabling cross pollination attempts.
