My name is Neil Crafter and I work on Glen Osmond Road at Fullarton....
nearly next door neighbours in terms of Aroid-L !! I am a member of the
IAS and have been a keen hobby grower and collector of philodendrons for
many years now.
I can't shed much light on bac ha but I do know of a chinese green
vegetable called bok choi - I guess the bac/bok part may be a standard
prefix for leafy greens.
Anyway if you have an interest in aroids ,especially philodendrons I"d
be pleased to hear from you
