Howdy Tricia,

Thanks for the information. I think The Genera of Araceae will have to
wait a while as with our Aussie to US current exchange rate the $135usd
would be around $A270 +postage.

The Deni Brown book is a possibility though. Must start saving my pennies.
Any idea what postage to Australia would be?

Why not try Touchwood Books at mail@touchwoodbooks.co.nz
They very obligingly obtained a copy for me, and now have spare copies at
approx. $120.00 NZ dollars $5 postage within NZ.
Sounds expensive but you would love it. I do! An excellent reference. A
'bible'in fact.
They also were able to supply me with 'Himalayan Cobra Lilies' Udai C
Pradhan, also excellent.
