  'New' potted aroid--ID solved.
From: "Julius Boos" <ju-bo at msn.com> on 2006.12.23 at 19:50:04(15009)
Dear Friends,

I have the answer, and the soloution was always right beneath my nose---in
searching Deni Bowns WONDERFUL book where I THOUGHT I had seen photos of
Xantho. violacium in bloom (I was wrong), I came across a photo of that
other "new aroid in cultivation', the "Pothos 'splash' I have been asking
for an ID on, and I am now 99.99% certain that it is in fact Scindapsis
pictus from Borneo and Java. Deni illustrates it on plate 63, upper
photo!!!!!!!!! It is a perfect match for the sample I brought home.
Dennis, has this been in commercial production before now, as Deni says that
it is sold as 'Argyraeus var. argyraus or even Epipremnum pictum
'Argyraeum', and that the more robust form is often sold as S. siamense,
Deni even mentions the thicker leaves.

The Best,
