  Climbing Aroid
From: "Steve Hammonds" lmgsteve at hotmail.com> on 2005.10.28 at 07:07:18(13472)

A quick introduction is in order. I have been on this mailing list for a few
year now & would like to thank everyone for all the valuable information
freely given. I'm on the UK West Coast (Wales) & dabble in the less usual
plants that can be grown in our wet USDA zone 9 climate.

I have a couple of questions I hope you can help with.

This is a Quote from a friend who encountered an unknown, to him, Aroid,
growing in Madeira:

"First one is an aroid that climbs exactly like a monstera but has leaves
like a Typhonium venustum/Dracunculus vulgaris."

I bumped into something similar wile holidaying in Jamaica several years
back, & we think it may be the same or closely related.

There is a picture at:-

Could sombody put a name to it for us?

The second request is a little more commercial. I work for a small garden
centre/nursery & my manager is interested in growing/selling some of the
more hardy bulbous Aroids. If anybody has links, phone numbers or email
addresses of commercial suppliers to the UK, I would be grateful to receive

Could you please email them to tufftropicals@hotmail.com rather than posting
to this board.

Thank you,

Steve Hammonds.

Hi Steve

I couldn't open the link but from the description the climber sounds like
Syngonium of which many spp. have Typhonium-like leaves as juveniles and
Dracunculus-like leaves as adults.
