  [Aroid-l] Philodendrons produce infrared light???
From: pjm at gol.com (Peter Matthews) on 2008.05.24 at 01:54:27(17608)
If infra-red radiation from the aroid spadix serves as an insect
attractant, it might be interesting (for researchers) to look at the
plant from different angles - from the side, from 45 degrees below and
above, and from directly overhead.

In the vertical direction, the radiation effect might be more
concentrated, and therefore visible to insects from a greater distance.

Perhaps even the angels are looking down.

Cheers, P.
