A short time ago it was mentioned to not plant Gonotopus and another Genus in
your garden because they can become too invasive and become weeds. I live
in Florida and would like to put some of my plants in the garden so I will
have less pots to take care of. Does anyone have a list of aroids that
become too enthusiastic when set free? I don't want to give any of mine
early parole if they can't be trusted.

Gonatopus boivinii and Zamioculcus zamiifolia are the only two that I know
of that will really take over on the ground. Of course, if you have trees,
Pothos and most of the Monstera will go wild. But, with the vines, this is
the fun of it.. Let them go. It will not hurt the tree and it looks good.
I have a neighbor that chops and cusses Pothos but I think it looks good.
At one time, I put a different Philo. or Monstera on each tree in the yard.
Sure, they took over but that's the reason they were there.

I've never been to Florida but I believe it to have a very mild
In Melbourne, Australia we have a mild temperate climate perhaps a
little similar to you ( ? )
Aroids that go 'feral' here are :
Zantedeschia Green Goddess ( self seeds everywhere )
Judging by the amount of offsets my Helicodiceros and Dracunculus
made this summer I suspect they could be mildly invasive given time.
It's STILL hot here and we badly need rain.

Glad you send this 'Jack ...' message. So I saw your name and address. It
rang a bell. I am in MD zone 6b. My garden is not shady, but I have shady
spots. What could I plant in relatively dry shade?
I'll visit the web site.
