Actually those colourful Aglaonema hybrids from Thailand, etc.,
are a lot easier to grow now than the first ones that came out. The A.
rotundum genes made them a problem to grow but this has been bred out to a
great extent, without losing the red, in fact at some breeders? places near
Bangkok I saw solid red leaves ! I bought a cv. called Valentine with a lot
of red which was bred by Dr. Mehta in Thailand and I just keep splitting it
up and multiplying it with no more care than I would give to any other
aglaonema.. Aroiders may not go for them but I think the general public
will in that it?s almost impossible to get anything any other colour than
green, silver, etc., in a house plant. Now with these Aglaonema hybrids, it
is possible. But we will see how it works out in the long run.

Subject: Re: [Aroid-l] Aroideana
As always your editor welcomes suggestions for the makeup of Aroideana,
which we all recognize to be one of the few tangible benefits of membership
(not to downplay the enormous satisfaction from the ?intangibles? that boost
interest in the family), but he journal can only include the material
submitted to it and endorsed by the reviewers. I am very pleased by what is
coming in, but recognize that there may be many members who would like other
topics to be included.
