Remusatia vivipara also seems to attract spider mites by the ton.....at least
here it does, so keep the humidity up around them. Michael

I have grown this for 2 years here just sort of placed on top of the ground
in Pine bark mulch and it has done very well. I am in the Woods with little
direct sunlight. One thing to note is that it did as well last year in a
severe drought as it did this year in record rain and unusually low
temperatures. The bulbils seem to root like crazy in a loose mulch but
only seem to do so the following spring after a winter rest in the greenhouse.

Close.... it was John Banta.
John gave a talk at the Aroid Extravaganza in Raleigh last year, he showed
beautiful slides of his many trips and gorgeous plants. As he spoke about
each plant, almost every time was the advice "... grow as a Caladium."

He said it so often, that all he had to do was pause and we the audience
would start snickering. Between John and Tony Avent we laughed all night.
It was a lot of fun.
