  Yet more smallest Aroids

Folks

How about good ol' Bucephalandra motleyana and B. catherineae? Then
there's Homalomena minutissima. The first time I encountered this is
was growing on a huge sandstone boulder in a stream in Brunei. At
first I thought it to be a foliaceous moss until I found the
inflorescences. The largest plants are less than 2 cm high. The
spathe 2 - 3 mm long. Now that's small!

Dear Pete,

Wow... that's really small. I think this Homalomena is the smallest of
all aroids... even smaller than Ambrosinia. It must to be pollinated by
microbes!!! :-)

Peter mentioned recently Bucephalandra motleyana, B. catherineae, and
Homalomena minutissima. Does anyone actually grow any of these three species?
I grow a majority of my plants in terrariums, along with several frogs, and
these plants would be wonderful additions to my collection of more unusual
material! Please email me with availability information. Doing so to my
individual address will clog the list-serve less.
Thanks in advance.
