For those that have aroidcollections with plants you haven't been able to ID you will love theLucid segment of this program. Lucid is a program available on CATEAraceae to plant lovers that helps you to key out plants. If you canmeasure and count the characteristics of a plant you can at least getclose to an ID with Lucid! Dr. Croat introduced the program to me inDecember and I'm having fun playing with it!

We're also planning to have dinner together for all that want to stayafter the meeting! Unless you attend the September show in Miami youwon't find an aroid show like it, at least not in mid America!

Please join us!
