  Request for Assistance for Help on a Term Paper

In the plant propagation class I am taking this quarter, the term paper
assignment is to write about propagating a species; the student gets to
select the species for the paper. It needs to be a species that would be
suitable for a relatively large greenhouse operation for commercial sales.

Since I am interested in aroids and Hawaii, I chose Anthurium.

Does anybody have journal-type articles (this teacher is an academic snob
and won't accept anything from "Sunset," etc.) or other references about
approaches to propagating Anthurium commercially that I could

Try the Journal of Environmental horticulture, they tend to have alot of
nursery propagation articles. It is published by the Horticulture Research

Dear Celeste,

There have been several articles on the propagation of Anthuriums in Hawaii
published in years past in 'our' journal, Aroideana. Perhaps Betsy or
someone associated with the back issues can research this and pass a list of
these articles on to you!?!?

Best of luck,

That would be absolutely marvelous, especially if the issues are available
for purchase. Betsy, can you help out on this?

There's also a book, "Tropical Foliage Plants: A Grower's Guide" by Lynn
Griffith (1998) that might be useful. Lynn Griffith is President
of A & L Southern Agricultural Laboratories in Pompano Beach, FL, and
should be easy to reach, just do a web search on the company name.

Have you searched the National Agricultural Library (NAL) site of the USDA?
It is called AGRICOLA for AGRICultural OnLine Access. Go to
http://www.nal.usda.gov/ag98/ follow the instructions and enter your
keywords. You can then look up the citations in your library, order the
publications you can't find through interlibrary loan, or order them through
the NAL. Please contact me off of the list if I can be of any further
assistance. Good luck!

Best regards, Scott
