  A Xanthosomatic problem
From: "Marek Argent" <abri1973 at wp.pl> on 2010.02.28 at 17:54:47(20677)
Hello,

I got 4 photos of a Xanthosoma. They were sent to me as X.
sagittifolium,
but I'm deceived by the dark petioles, they look more like X. violaceum
or X. nigrum.

The photos were taken in two botanic gardens in Poland.
The horizontal ones (with Pistia on the right) in one garden,
these vertical in another garden:

I'd be very grateful for any help.

Dear Marek

The only person who I believe can give you a totally accurate answer on thi
s question is Dr. Goncalves in Brazil.
We had a long discussion on some photos of plants much like these a couple
of years ago on aroid-l.
I will offer my OPINION that the plants in your photos are X. sagittifolium
because of the all-green blades I recall that the ones I.D.`d by Eduard
o a while ago also had darkened petioles but the leaf blades were a ''cl
ean'' green like those in your photos unlike the blades of X. violacium/
nigrum in which there are traces of the purple color. The spathes will al
so reflect these colors..

Sincerely
