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.........

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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

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.

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.
International Aroid Society
The International Aroid Society (IAS) was founded in June of 1977 at the|
home of Bette Waterbury, who became the first President. Dr. Michael
Madison, Taxonomist at Marie Selby Botanical Garden in Sarasota, Florida
was the Guiding Presence and became the Editor of our Scientific Journal,
the Aroideana. The name was suggested by Dr. Dan Nicolson of the
Smithsonian Institution. It means 'having to do with or pertaining to
aroids.' The Society is dedicated to promoting the study of the aroid
family in all its aspects. Membership is open to anyone who has an interest
in this plant family.
The IAS has been a fast moving organization. By the end of the year, 1977,
there were already 73 members. This progress has continued. There are now
over four hundred members world wide and we continue to grow.
Publications: Aroideana is published one Volume per year and contains in
excess of one hundred pages. Sometimes it is published more than once
during the year and these additional Aroideanas are Numbered. Usually, the
number of pages totals about one hundred for the year. This publication is
devoted to the more scientific aspects of Araceae. The Newsletter is
published bi-monthly and is a more 'chatty' publication. Here,
announcements, general horticultural information, plant exchanges and new
Aroid Literature are discussed.
Visit our Web Page at >http://www.mobot.org/IAS/<. There you
will find a multitude of information and a Membership Application.
Membership Fees: Individual Membership (USA) $25.00
International (via Air Mail) $30.00
