O.K..... There may only be one species , BUT.... I then must have two
varietal forms... I have one that is the 'standard' but again... I have
one that has very small leaflets... same appearance but definitely smaller
over all... The leaflets are a bit different... a little more narrow and
longer vs. the regular foliage and is a bit lighter incolor.... So, is it
a different species... haven't seen this one flower yet.. Matter of fact,
I have had it for years and never had a flower that I know about.

Another thing... This one is almost as bad as Gonatopus... One leaf falls
on the ground... you have another plant! As far as I know, Gonatopus and
Zamicuclcas are the only two Aroids that propagate by just the leaf. Any
