This recent blow-in alien thanks you for your wonderful caring so long for &
propagating the rarity on behalf of the IAS.

After all the care, I am glad that you will not have to sacrificed it for
tissue culturing even for a year & hope that a supreme strain can be found.

Sales of even a couple of hundred plants of just that one plant might make
IAS resources significantly richer, & maybe with more rarities there might
be benefit for the Rain Forest? Its probably all idealistic & impractical
of course.

I have many very distinct "one only" Spathiphyllum taxons & cultons which I
would like to disseminate with other specialist "Arks". Where is the most
economic to have quite small numbers of each tissue cultured in Florida
please? I hope the Spiritu-sancti phenomenon is the beginning of a great
new era of even greater caring & sharing in the IAS.
