Re: [Aroid-l] African aroids?

The most complex genus, at least in
tropical Africa is Culcasia. Anubias is
relatively rich too. In the eastern highlands Stylochiton is important. None
are super big and most are not particularly easy to cultivate.

Subject: [Aroid-l] African aroids?
again, fellow aroiders,
have been wondering today about African aroids. Those of us who grow
tropical aroids will be aware of the genera of the American tropics, i.e.
Caladium, Xanthosoma, Philodendron, Anthurium, Monstera, Spathiphyllum,
Dieffenbachia, et al.; and the Southeast Asian genera, Epipremnum, Aglaonema,
Colocasia, Alocasia, Cyrtosperma, and most of the Amorphs. But Africa seems almost like the Lost Continent. Other
than Zantedeschia and some of the Amorphs, what African genera are widely known
in cultivation? The biodiversity of Africa
has long fascinated me, but it seems like the most difficult continent to find
out much about. Who here grows African aroids besides Zantedeschia
