  [Aroid-l] 'New' commercial aroids in pots
From: "Julius Boos" <ju-bo at msn.com> on 2006.12.17 at 15:01:32(14951)
Dear Friends,

In my job I recently came across two new-to-me vining aroids grown and sold
by commercial growers in S. W. Florida, and bought in quantity in hanging
pots/baskets by a large hotel in the area. One has a dark, broadly cordate
purplish-green leaf w/ cream spots, but what is most remarkable to me is the
texture of the leaves, thick and almost rugose, which reminds me of
something akin to Philo. rugosm! I`d like to grow it to adult size!
The other has cordate leaves w/an attenuate point(long extended point or
tip), the remarkable thing is a broadish lime-green stripe down the center
of each regular-green leaf and down to the end of the long 'point' at each
leaf`s end.

Anyone (Denis, Ron, Scott??) have any idea on what genera these belong to??

Good Growing.
