Dear Zach:

Are you referring to Chromosome number? In the diploid condition
there is quite a lot of variation, including 12, 20, 30 but 30 is a very
common chromozome number in most genera. There are papers which survey the
chromosome numbers for the whole family.

Araceae. Nord. J. Bot. 9: 119-166.
