[Aroid-l] C. 'Fontanesii' id - Pete's id
From: tony at plantdelights.com (Tony Avent) on 2007.10.07 at 22:24:32(16420)|
I checked the flowers on our C. 'Fontanesii' and indeed the spathes do
open quite a bit wider than the C. esculenta cultivars that we grow.
Can you direct us to an article about the C.gaoligongenis/lihengiae
complex. We found plants in Vietnam that seem to resemble C.
gaoligongensis, but these look nothing like C. 'Fontanesii'. Please,
tell us more.
