I have for the last few years been going crazy with my digital camera. I
have taken photos of just about every aroid I have come in contact with.
These photos which add up to over 8,000 are now being put on to my new
web site. I am manly looking to have something much like the Tropica
book for the Internet completely free and informative. The web site is
not yet finished nor will it probably ever been completely done.
My plans are to have a web site which list every genus every species
and every form. I don't ask to much.
I have not been working on this alone. Harry Whitmore has really put the
web site together and has done a extremely excellent job of helping me
work on this. It would most likely not exist with out his help.

Also I must say Chanrit and Enid offered to allow me to use a few photos
of odd plants they had pictures of. I have not yet put credit on the
photos but will do so soon as I can figure it out LOL.

I am updating this site almost daily and will keep doing so till the
weather warms up. If anyone might have some odd photos to add to the
site I may be interested in them credit will be given. I am manly
looking for extremely nice photos or photos of species I don't have pics
of. As always feel free to send me plants that need to be pictured :>)

I would like to ask for some expert help on some IDs for this site. I
would like for it to be a very reliable reference for people to use. So
if people see plants wrongly IDed please let me know which family group
and exact pic which should have a ID number under it. Then let me know
what it should be labeled.

Well here is the site enjoy

For the Zingiberaceae page at least I have IDs for everything but one or
two, but I assume you have some already ID'ed just not listed yet?? or
does a number mean you definitely need an ID? There are a few mixed
genera (ie alpinia in the hedychium folder, costus in the zingiber).
let me know if you need 'em. Cool site, congrats! If anyone is
interested I've just started a few new forums (non-aroid though)
including a couple ginger forums and hardy tropicals, zingiberales etc.
at http://www.gingerwoodnursery.com/forums/ just started, so no real
traffic yet.
