  All shingle plants?
From: "brian williams" pugturd50 at hotmail.com> on 2002.03.20 at 22:30:11(8305)
I am looking to find all the shingle plants aroid and nonaroid. Does anyone
know all the species that have this unusual characteristic? Anyone know of
some sources or collectors of these aroids and nonaroids?

Dear Angel,

The juvinile stages/plants of certain climbing aroids (the best known
genus that does this is Monstera) produce leaves thay lie FLAT and partially
overlapping on the surface that they are climbing/attached to and the leaves
thus have the pattern of 'shingle' tiles on a roof.

miller's tropicals has dischidias and some hoyas. Their website is millerstropicals.com i think. If they are not listed i can run over there and see what species they have.

Earlier, Hoya was mentioned. Are these shingle plants only in the juvenile stage, or permanently?

Would you consider leafy liverworts?

I believe most of the hoyas are permanent shingle type leafs. Some produce
both leafs at the sometime in growth. The other leafs are used for ant
homes.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't know of any Hoyas that have the 'shingle plant'
growth habit. Several Dischidias
would be in this category though.
