Yes these are two Amorphs I have been after for eons aswell. Wilbert
(well I`m sure it was he...tis a while back now ),was kind enough to
send me a A. Paeoniifolius some time ago. However, it remained dormant
for over a year, then this spring, the tuber succumbed to some form of
rot or similar (despite being kept totally dry and cool..ahh well ). So
it never got going. If yu`re reading Wilbert.........

Hi:

I've been browsing this list for several weeks. I'd really appreciate
it if someone would briefly outline what plants belong in this family.
For instance, do philodendrons belong here? I am trying to find out if
I even grow this type of plant. I really appreciate your help.

Also, if anyone is interested in geraniums/pelargoniums, I am
establishing a new e-mail list for this family. Please send your email
message to pelargoniums@hotmail.com with the subject line of geranium,
pelargonium, (or their plural form) and the request to subscribe in the
body of the letter. This is not being done with a listserver so please
be patient if a few bugs occur in the technology of adding your address
to my list "geraniums" and forwarding messages to everyone. I am still
learning.

Steve,

Wow, sorry to hear about your demised paeoniifolius! That doesn't happen all
to often with that species. Look for the "sales" this year and I shall do my
best to renew it. Just let me know at the time that you lost yours, so I
can put you on high priority! I have already answered Neals request directly to him.

Cheers, Wilbert

The determining factor that a plant is/is not an aroid is the presence of a
spathe and a spadix in the inflorescence. Some of the most common genera
of Araceae are Anthurium, Philodendron, Aglaonema, Spathiphyllum and
'Pothos' or Epipremnum. This can be explored further by going to the IAS
Web Site at . Follow the links from "Araceae"
and click on the 'Genera of Araceae", there you will find a complete
listing, many with pictures.

Hope this helps. Also, I am following this message with some information
regarding the International Aroid Society.
