  Re: [aroid-l] common pothos

Hi,

Please give us a description on what you are referring to as 'common
pothos',
does it have green leaves w/ yellow markings?? Several plants sold at
home-depot/k-mart type stores have this name, none belong to or are in the
genus Pothos. All w/ the yellow markings are juvenile forms of a HUGE
Asian climber, it covers adult pine trees here in WPB, Florida, the leaves
are about 3 ft. long by 18 inches wide, with splits!! It is said to bloom
very rarely near the very top of its maximum climbing height. Peter Boyce
told me that only a very few blooms had ever been collected, and I have been
on the look-out for a bloom with no success thus far.
