Hello, all!
My name is Lynn, and I am new to the wonderful world of aroids. I am trying
to fill the shoes of Petra Schmidt, at Plant Delights, who I'm sure you have
corresponded with in the past. Petra is returning to Wisconsin, and will be
rejoining the group after her move.
I am a graduate of Penn State University, from the Department of
Horticulture, and have worked with the Cooperative Extension service in
Lackawanna County, PA and with the Gardener's Forum and Master Gardener's
programs prior to joining the commercial venue. I love the diversity of form
and sheer size of some of the larger Aroids, as well as the challenge of
making them more accessible to the greater gardening public. I hope to learn
much from you folks, and be as valuable an asset as possible.
Please let me know if I can be of assistance to you. I look forward to our
future correspondence!

Lynn Butler

Happy to congratulate you. No doubt you'll be successful in working at
Plant Delight Nurseries. You'll soon hear from me, a "smaller aroids"
lover. Ask Tony.
Best wishes.

Hi,I recently joined the IAS (about a month ago), and just found out about the forum. I have a question, I just ordered Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Hercules' from Kartuz Greenhouses. I have another type of Zantedeschia that is currently growing again in a small pot. How do you care for Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Hercules'? Does it like wet soil? Moist? Dry? And what temperatures do they prefer? How about lighting? Thanks

Hello Tindomul (you are obviously a Tolkien fan), and welcome to our aroid forum.

I have been growing ‘Hercules’ for several years and find that it is extremely adaptable to most conditions. My plant, about 1.5 meters high
currently grows in a 30 cm pot and spends the summers outside here in SE Wisconsin on the east side of my house where it gets plenty of sun. In winter it
goes in the large SW facing window of an upstairs bedroom, where it seems to do just fine and even blooms on occasion. Night time temps in the fall, before I
bring it in can fall into the 40’s or even a bit lower with no apparent harmful effects. Mine certainly doesn’t need wet soil and is quite happy with enough water
to keep the soil just on the moist side.
