I remember when the Aroid Conference was in St. Louis and I would head out a lunch to take a quick walk to see the botanical garden.  Whew, it was really hot!

John:  Atlanta Botanical Garden invested in an impressive cooling system so they can actually grow cloud forest species.  In St. Louis we rely only on wet cells which have limited cooling properties when you have super high humidy in our hot summers.  Atlanta would be even worse, hotter that is than we are without  their new cooling system.

Hi Tom,
 
I was interested to see that summer temperatures are too high at Mobot for growing certain things. Would you say that that is also true of Atlanta Botanical Gardens? They have what appears to be good temperature control for high elevation species.
 
Regards,
 
John.

Dear Simon: 
 
I don't have it in cultivation any more but I think it is reasonably common near the divide at Vara Blanca on the old road to Puerto Viejo from San Jos=C3=A9. I too have not seen in in any collection in the US.  You would have a much better chance to keep it alive in Holland than nearly any living collection here where the summer temperatures are too high. Certainly I will let you know if I encounter it anywhere.
 
Tom

Hello Forum,
 
I joined this list a couple of weeks ago, and after having lurked this long I guess an introduction is appropriate. I have studied Biology at the University of Amsterdam, and am living in the north of The Netherlands, province of Friesland. Ever since I was a small boy, I have had a keen interest in anything green - this besides my other great pastime, bird watching. Over the last 35 years, my interest has mainly been focused on the cultivation of botanical orchids, of which I now have some 400 plants and close to 200 species. Besides these, I have a fair share of other botanical plant species, such as bromeliads (mainly Tillandsias), gesneriads, cacti (mainly epiphytic species and winter hardy Echinocerei), some Hoyas and Hippeastrums, several carnivorous plants etc. growing in an artificial raised bog in the back yard, and a couple of Anthurium species (A. andraeanum, A. cabrerense, A. flavolineatum, A. gracile, A. scandens and an unidentified species, bought from Ecuagener
 
 a as A. flavolineatum, but to me something totally different).
 
It is with respect to the latter genus that would like to ask for a favour. Since a long time I have tried to source material of true to species Anthurium scherzerianum. I remember that when I was in my teens, A. scherzerianum was still easy to find from florists (which back then often still propagated plants from their own stock, instead of offering laboratory produced 'mass crops' as is the norm today), but since then the true species has disappeared in favour of Anthurium hybrids - which, in The Netherlands unfortunately are still offered as A. scherzerianum. Should any one of you be growing botanically pure material of A. scherzerianum, I would be much interested in obtaining either cuttings, or fresh berries that preferably are the result of controlled pollination, for which I am willing to pay. I therefore kindly request anyone having material to share to contact me privately.
 
Looking forward to hear from you, and with best regards,
 
Simon M. Wellinga
