Re: Smallest Aroids - mini-Acorus

Dear Carlo, Eduardo et all,|
If Eduardo can include Pistia, you might as well consider Lemna,
Wolfia etc - the smallest of ALL flowering plants. Once included among
Araceae, now mostly separated.
On the other hand, a really small aroid I have lost and would like
to replace is a very small form of Acorus gramineus pusillus - unnamed
small form. This typical acorus-looking plant has foliage under 1 inch in
height and was perfectly hardy here outdoors like its numerous cousins. It
is about 1/3 the height of the typical A. gramineus pusillus. Does anyone
grow this and want to trade?
Best Jim W.
