  Cuttings and Seeds from Joep Moonen
From: Denis denis at skg.com> on 2000.05.31 at 15:18:02(4658)
Just wanted to let you know that the cutting and Seeds from Joep Moonen
arrived yesterday from the Emerald Village Forest in French Guiana. Joep
sent these up for the Auction sale at the Annual Show in September in
exchange for some back issues of Aroidiana.

Included in the package were pieces (2-3 stem cuttings of each) of the
following plants sans roots and leaves:

Philodendron ornatum from Creek Gaborel
Philodendron callosum
Philodendron linneae-- a very large birdsnest type with thick leaves.
Philodendron polypoides--
Philodendron billietiae-- a wide form and a narrow form

Anthurium Moonenii-- a new species which was extremely sought after
last Auction.

Denis
The Philodendron you refer to is actually P.solimoesense (I think I've got the
spelling right, but I'll check my data at home). It is a member of the
"self-heading" subgenus Meconostigma, of which the common P.bipinnatifidum
is the
best known member. Dr Simon Mayo's revision of this subgenus is the ultimate
source for a description of this plant. (Kew Bulletin) Denis, as these plants
grow relatively slowly on a trunk, I think you'll still be able to find Florida
for some time to come!

Neil
