Bernhard:

Thanks for posting the results of your
study of Sauromatum venosum. Since we introduced S. ‘Indian Giant’
we have grown out several hundred crosses between S. ‘Indian Giant’
and typical S. venosum. The resulting plants are intermediate between both
parents with an amazing amount of variability including some plants with no
spots on the petiole, and others with an abundance of spots. Also, there is
quite a bit of difference with leaf size and leaf ruffling.

style="margin:0px;">Tony,

did you do selfings
of the F1 yet? If they are fertile, it would at least give another
indication that it's not triploid.

style="margin:0px;">Christopher,

I did not
think about publishing.

I just wanted to send
that result to the group, since the discussion of polyploidy of 'Indian
Giant' came up the other year.

If I find time
to do some chromosome counts, it might be worth to write a few lines for
Aroidiana. In the given state it's rather a short note....

style="margin:0px;">Happy growing, Bernhard.

Bernhard,

If you think that this would be too brief
for Aroideana (and we are getting very close (=way past) deadline for vol. 34,
how about smoothing the edges of this for Carla to put into the Newsletter. You
could incorporate your communications with Tony and round it out nicely as a
preliminary report of work in progress. Regards, Derek

Dear
Jim W.,

Aroiders,

....already more than one year ago I compared the ploidy level of
a normal form of Typhonium venosum.... with my 'Indian Giant'

Derek,

let's see what Tony thinks about it.....
Maybe it's more worthwhile waiting to see if I can do some chromosome
counts of my regular T. venosum and the 'Indian Giant' and put the
results together.
