In that space are carried on diverse horticultural and educational programs for children and adults. Our research facilities for physiology, pathology and tissue culture are at our Research Station in Westchester County.

This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: After the publication of the new species, Homa/omena speariae Bogner et Moffler (Moffler and Bogner, 1984), I (J.B.) pollinated it by hand obtaining fruits with viable seeds. Seeds were sent to Mr. John Banta of the River Haven Nursery, Rt. 2, Box 144, Alva, Florida 33920, in order to introduce this handsome aroid into the trade. Since our publication, plants were planted into a ground bed at the Munich Botanical Garden where they grew much larger than the original container grown specimens.

Alan Herndon Naturalized aroids
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: Tropical plants are strangers in most of the United States. Freezing temperatures, unknown in their native lands, force them to remain inside protective walls throughout the cold season. In south Florida, however, freezing temperatures are rare, and many tropical plants can be grown outdoors all year round. Along with the ability to grow yearround outside also comes the ability to escape. Several aroids have done just that, and a few have entrenched themselves so well among the native flora that only our historical knowledge allows us to recognize that they were brought in deliberately by man.

John Banta Plant collectors and breeding
This article available FREE to IAS Members with a PERSONAL login. LOGIN, REGISTER or JOIN
 ABSTRACT: As collectors of rare plants we are ultimately charged with their survival. The setting of seeds is the best insurance for perpetuating the genetic combinations of any species. Selfing is an ideal method but too seldom possible. A prejudice against hybrids should not prevent the retention of a unique genetic repertory. The value of a species is evident. Unfortunately the value of hybrids may need some illumination.

Josef Bogner Jasarum steyermarkii Bunting (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: Jasarum steyermarkii was first discovered by S. and C. Tillett in the Mazaruni River Basin in Guyana on September 24, 1960, but their specimens, although very striking, long remained unidentified. In February 1972, Julian A. Steyermark found the same species in the Estado Bolivar in Venezuela; this collection became the type of the new genus and species, which George S. Bunting published in 1977. The aquatic nature of this aroid is very remarkable because no true aquatic were previously known for the subfamily Colocasioideae. It was certainly one of the most interesting discoveries in Araceae in recent decades.

Leslie Paul Nyman, Joseph Arditti Germination of taro seeds (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: When seeds are collected as soon as they ripen, they germinate without problems in a commercial soil mixture ("Jungle Growth" brand) in plastic covered pots (Melin, 1981). However, seeds collected from taro patches in the South Pacific may often harbor fungi which grow quickly and destroy the seedlings. The procedures we describe here were developed to prevent losses due to such fungal infections. They have been published previously (for a review see Arditti and Strauss, 1979).

Deni Bown Alien aroids in an English woodland (Buy)
 ABSTRACT: It is hard to imagine anything more exciting for an aroid enthusiast - in the temperate zone at least - than to discover an area of countryside close to home which is full of non-native species. This is what happened when in the late summer of 1984. I explored some woodland about 5 miles from where I live. on the border between Berkshire and Hampshire in southern England.
