  Aglaonema yahoo group.

I thought I would share with Aroid L a yahoo group called Aglaonema. I
have been on it for a few weeks and most of the people do not speak
english but their are a hand full that does. The most impressive think
are the pictures of new hybrids. Many of these people are hybridizers in
Thailand and the Philippines. Here is a link one of the hybridizers sent
to the group. Very beautiful and colorful forms showing up.

I've tried a few of these forms as "house plants" in my house that allows most average plants to thrive. They languished. They may need 80F and 80% humidity to thrive?

Michael, you are correct with those parameters, particularly the high
humidity mark, regarding some of the
Thai hybrid Aglaonemas. Altho the Thai's are using a host of Aglaonemas for
hybridizing these days, those with A. rotundum parentage will not grow well
in home air conditioning and heating, if at all. I find the hybrids barely
hold their own grown in outside conditions here in central Florida, and the
species rotundum is
truly the devil to grow here.

And....is a terrarium not possible? this is how we dealt with plants who
collapse outside of a TURKISH BATH...

Dear All,

A small correction for Brian's mail. Aglaonema breeders are Thai and
Indonesian, not Phillipino. Philippino, Indian and Floridan breeders don't
produce pink/red aglaonema hybrids.
