  A break from current discussion - ID help
From: Don Martinson <llmen at wi.rr.com> on 2011.11.24 at 13:35:15(22412)

On a recent trip to the Fairchild Gardens in Florida, I came upon the following, but could find no ID tag.

Can anyone help?

Dear Don,

This one is close to Aglaonema 'Pride of Sumatra',

but i't rather not the same, because 'P.o.S' veins are more distinct.

Best,

I believe it would be a type of Aglaonema. Beyond that, no clue. It's pretty.

An Asian cultivar of Aglaonema, similar to 'Pride of Sumatra',

anyway one of the oldest red cultivars.

...it may be also the species Aglaonema rotundum

in which all the red cultivars originate,

just like in this photo:

However now it's hard to say which one can be the species,

and which is a cultivar.

There is no mistaking
A. rotundum. The leaves are fairly orbicular.

It would never grow as
vigorously as this hybrid.
