Good ole Aglaonemas used to be THE houseplant way back when, and they went
out of vogue for
years. They're now making a strong commercial comeback in the form of
hybrids created by Dr. Frank Brown of Valkaria Fla. But even the 'old' ones
make wonderful houseplants, and in my opinion are well worth the space in an
Aroid collectors greenhouse. Interest has seriously waned for this and
other genera among Aroiders, in favor of the tuberous Amorpho's and company.
I've been looking for years for many of the old ones, such as 'Francher',
'Malay Beauty', 'Pewter', 'Belvedere', the many forms of costatum,
'Mutton-fat Jade', 'San Remo', the many forms of crispum, 'Nocturne', etc,
etc, etc.
