  Monstera obliqua and Culcasia questions
From: RAYMOMATTLA at cs.com on 2007.03.21 at 18:34:12(15463)
Is this name still "good" or is this now considered another form of M. adansonii. How many forms of this plant species are there?

Also...anyone growing any Culcasia species? I have a few species and would love to trade if anyone has anything different. They seem to be easy to grow but are still not seen very often.

Thanks!
Michael

Michael:

I have had Culcasia in
cultivation and I will have to check if I still have them.

Dear
Michael:

The name Monstera obliqua Miq. is definitely a good species
but it is a highly variable one that may ultimately have to be divided up. I do
not agree with Mike Madison's full synonymy for example. There are three
subspecies of M. adansonii but it is another species that probably will end up
much changed with a new revision.

Thanks for clearing that up for me Tom.
