Dear, tsuh yang chen,

if you like to see and visit real primary rainforest, I can stongly advise
you to contact a friend of mine who is living in Sao Paolo. He has bought
200 acre of this forest near Morro Grande. His name is Fernado Bignardi. If
you like his adress and phone number, email me at my home adress. I have
been there 2 years ago and it was really suppurp

Not aroid, but you should make a trip to the Organ mountains (near
Rio) and see the only location for the incredible amaryllid Worsleya
Rayneri which grows in nearly bare rock. This 'Blue Amaryllis' get some 5
to 8 ft tall and is endemic to only a couple nearby location. Endangered
and protected in Brazil it is worth a pilgrimage.

I found the remarks about Blue Amaryllis interesting. Worsleya rayneri.
I am going to have to research that one-where it will grow, temperature and
humidity needs, etc.

Interesting opportunity. A photo is at:

which certainly whet my appetite.

Since Worsleya or Blue Amaryllis is OFF-TOPIC, I would be pleased to send
copies of an email which I have received and additional information to
anyone who will send a PRIVATE email to me.
