Hello Deni!

Good to hear your 'voice'.
Just a point, but I had quite a conversation w/ Peter Boyce some time ago
about the correct name for the 'common pothos' which you report to be
Epipremium aureum. Peter explained the this vari. plant had been REFERED
to the species E. aureum, as the cultivated plant resembled the
herb. specimens of wild-collected E. aureum, but that he had never felt
totally 'comfortable' with that determination. He went on to say that he
was pretty excited as he believed that he had just found the TRUE source of
cultivated plant, some remote Island in Indonesia I believe. This wild
plant was a GOOD match for the cultivated plant, was NOT E. aurium, and he
intended to describe it as a new species.

Hope that things go well for you! STILL enjoying my copy of 'Aroids'!

Best Wishes,

Julius Boos.
