I included a quote from Pete Boyce which he sent last summer on a different but related subject which helps to clarify a bit of this "plant mystery".
Also, my sincere thanks to LariAnn Garner and Julius Boos for their input and a public thank you to Deni Bown since I borrowed a passage (with credit) for this page from her book Aroids, Plants of the Arum Family. If you are an aroid collector, and don't own a copy, buy one now!!
