  Which Arum ?
From: Baumfarn Webmaster webmaster at baumfarn.at> on 2006.05.14 at 22:30:58(14187)
Is it an Arum? I think so... but what kind?

Hi Peter

Inflorescence is really too hold to name to accuracy; it's either Arum
maculatum, A. byzantinum or possibly A. orientale. My bet is the first. What
shape are the tubers?

Dear Peter,Last year my Arum orientale had a similar flower, from this picture I think we cannot tell what is the botanical name of it. Can you post a picture from the leaves? And a picture from the flowers at the bottom of the inflorescence. From those they might be able to tell the name.Best Wishes,Jani

thanks to all for the first answers! :-)

Here are the leave pics:

The tubers are quite flat and small allthough already flowering.
They grows in Vienna, Austria (w/o kangaroos!)

Does anyone know anything about Philodendron
variifolium? I've got a couple of these but information, other than
it is a native of Peru, is hard to find.

We found it in NE Ecuador nearly into Columbia. Leaves were 18" long and
did not loose the silver color. It is a jewel. I have flowered it but
pollination failed. Charlie McDaniel sold totem of it at the aroid show
last year. More should be available this year for those who missed it.

Thanks! Do you know where I can find a copy of the technical description?
So far I've been unable to find one.

Hi Ron,

Here is a photo of it during the show. But it was labeled 'Picta'. Is
it safe to call it p. variifolium now?

Hi, Steve-

I found this description on w3Tropicos. Maybe it will help you until
you find a more complete one. Best, Carla

Thanks! The problem is I cannot find the technical
description listed with this reference. Am I missing it
