Hi Julius

I'm putting together the other half of my Epipremnum mss at the moment
(i.e., the bit dealing with New Guinea & the Pacific) and which will tackle
E. aureum, etc. Perhaps it is also worth doing something for Aroideana
dealing with this but withou all the heavyweight stuff; just an overview of
the species and the synonomy?

There is a 'problem' in that the type of E. aureum is the 'sport; with
golden leaves, despite the fact that the wild plants re the green form that
we regard as a sport of the golden. This unfortunately means that we need a
horticultural cultivar name of the green form in order to distinguish it
from the golden, despite the fact that the golden form is very rare in the
wild (crazy eh?). The green leaves plan flowers quite regularly in the wild.
