Re: [Aroid-l] Aglaonema with yellow flowers

That is worth noting. I just did a Google image search for Aglaonema Chocolate, and none of the pictures had flowers. Which means that I don't know if yellow is typical of this cultivar or not. It might be worth investigating the nature of the pigment in the leaves that creates the chocolate color: in plants, proanthocyanidin creates the brown, beige, or tan colors; whereas yellow is either carotenoid or a flavonoid. Are these flowers a clear yellow, or is it more of a brownish yellow? The latter would suggest that the leaf pigment is also in the flowers; the former would suggest a different explanation.

This is fascinating stuff, to me, anyway. It's too bad that almost nobody
is on here any longer. I wonder why.
Speaking along the lines of flowers, I noticed my Aglaonema "Chocolate" are
flowering and the flowers are yellow. What a surprise that was. Nice change
from the usual white.
