  Aroideana 36

Hi everyone,

As always at this time of year I am looking for cultural or other “practical”
aroid material for the next issue of Aroideana.

I would like to have collections of short pieces (or long if you
prefer) on a couple of topics. One possible is new media or growing techniques
(including simply tips on what has worked for you for a particular genus or
group), the other would be coverage of the genera that are usually grown in
tanks, either because they are aquatic or because they need the close attention
to atmospheric humidity. Or you can suggest a topic of your own, bearing in
mind what may have been covered in the past few years.

The deadline for text (or a promise that something is almost ready) is
January 1st.

Hi Derek,

Have been making note on an article about the important relationship between professional botanists and amateur collectors.

Would have it done (draft) and to you by the 1st.

Hi Derek,

I will be happy to write another cultural article for Aroideana but this current deadline is probably too close for me. My apologies. I also have an article mostly completed on "Do tuberous aroids have tubers?" that I will polish up next year.

Regarding Mr. Ruckert's planned article, this topic is something that I have been closely and directly involved with for many years and from both sides. If you feel it is appropriate, let him know I would be happy to look over his paper and perhaps add some further insights.

Best Regards,

Dear Greg:

That sounds like a very interesting topic.
I would like to read your article at some point to learn of your ideas!
