I'm brand new to this list, so I thought I'd start by introducing
myself. I'm Roz, I live in Culver City in Southern California, and I'm
a totally novice aroid grower. I live in an apartment and do a lot of
indoor growing, but most of my experience is with gesneriads. I've
started to get interested in aroids because every time I go to botanical
gardens or greenhouses lately, it seems that most of the plants that
fascinate me are aroids.
I hadn't realized that there were some philodendron varieties with
variegated foilage in colors other than shades of green and white. In
particular I've noticed a variety called 'Pink Princess' and I had a few
questions about it:
1) Is 'Pink Princess' considered rare or exotic by aroid growers?
2) I've noticed on the webpages of some nurseries or aroid growers, two
other varieties: "Pink Prince' and 'Pink Lady' - are these varieties
distinct from 'Pink Princess' or are they all essentially the same name
for the same plant?
3) In my web searches, I've also seen references to a place called
"Bamboo Nurseries" - where is it located, and does it have a website?
My apologies is these questions are too basic or have been covered a lot
in past posts. As I said, I'm very much a novice with aroids.
Finally, I'm having problems subscribing to this list - the list serve
engine keeps telling me I'm subscribed, but I don't seem to be getting
any messages. So until I figure this out, I'd very much appreciate it
if you could cc my personal e-mail with your response.
Thank you all so much.
