  Aroid availability--"Big Island" hawaii
From: "Dean Ouer" d.ouer at cox.net> on 2003.04.15 at 18:09:13(10099)
Does anyone know of any aroid collectors on the Big Island of Hawaii. I am starting a garden there and am having trouble locating rare plants. Even info on contacts on the other islands would also be helpful.

Thanks in advance for any replies,
Dean Ouer

I personally don't know of any good aroid sources on big island
but if you haven't already done so, you should absolutely get in
touch with a guy named Andy over on Maui. He has a very fine
nursery/ botanic garden called Tropical Gardens of Maui, located
on Iao Valley Rd. just past Wailuku.

He has many more aroids & rare plants (plus he's growing more native
Hawai'ian species lately) growing on his property than appear on the
web site and needless to say: available choices for the local market
are far greater than his exclusively bench grown export material.

Also- Andy's been around a long time and knows most of the local
players in the rare plant game so if you have a plant want-list, he'd be
an excellent place to start. Besides all that, he's a really great guy!

Best of luck to you,
