  Aroids/Gingers in Hawaii
From: Timothy Chapman <chapman at premier.net> on 1997.06.12 at 02:24:07(826)
Hello all,

I am going to Hawaii next week (Sun. 15th - Sun 22nd) and would like
some additional suggestions for plant related visits. My trip is
limited to Oahu and the big island. I've pretty much lined up my ginger
contacts, but would like to know about any aroid collectors out there.
I'm also planning to visit Lyon and Waimea Arboretums. Any other

Any ideas on where to see, photograph, and obtain aroids and
Zingiberales would be appreciated.

Dear Tim:

While you're on the Big Island, be sure to visit the Hawaii Tropical
Botanical Garden, located on the Scenic Route, seven miles north of Hilo,
off of Highway 19. Lots of aroids, gingers, heliconia, etc. Please be
sure to ask for me at the reception desk and I will comp you in. Oh, by
the way, we are closed on weekends.

While you are in the Hilo area, be sure to visit Mark Collins at Eden Farms
(Phone: (808) 959-7943). He is a very avid Zingiberales enthusiast and
you are in for a treat if you pay him a visit. Also, the Hilo area is full
of commercial Anthurium nurseries which may be of interest.

Have a good trip!

Scott A. Lucas
