  mystery Typhonium
From: piaba piabinha at yahoo.com> on 2003.10.26 at 19:04:06(10721)
hello everybody,

i know lord p. will just scream at me for losing the
tag on this one... but as you recall, i had inquired
before about this small, round leaved Typhonium i'm
growing. i don't know if it's violaefolium, as the
leaves are round and not pointy at all, but maybe
that's just its juvenile form. in any event, today i
noticed that it's forming little tubers at the base of
the leaf (or where the leaf meets the petiole, what
you call that part?). does that provide a clue on
what it could be?

It underscores the probability that it is violaefolium!

It may be Typhonium Orbifolium.

But that species doesn't produce foliar bulbils!

Can't know for sure until it flowers, of course, but I'm with Wilbert -
I'd bet on T. violaefolium. I recall something about how pointy the leaves
are, but the leaves on mine are very, very round, so to me everything fits

It's a thought. Indeed, some moments in its life history, leaves are more
rotund than later.

But Wilbert, my Typhonium does produce foliar bulbils, at this very moment!

O.k., so the identification may be wrong. If it is my own identification,
well, then I may have goofed.
