  [Aroid-l] Aroid stamp

MessageAlmost each country has an issue of stamps with cacti or tropical orchids. There's no rule that only the native (or endemic) plants should be on stamps. However aroids are rare on stamps. I think it should be a recognizable group together with cacti, orchids and roses. My country (Poland) has never released any stamp with an aroid, but the neighbours did (Germany - 3 stamps and Czech Rep. also 3 stamps). In our area grow wild: Calla palustris, Arum orientale, Arum maculatum, a few species of Lemna and Spirodela polyrrhiza.
