For those that don't recognize the name Johannes Moonen, this is my
very dear friend Joep Moonen one of the wisest plantsmen and
naturalists in South America. Joep (Yupe), as all us call him, has
spent time in my home and I consider he and his wife Marijke very
dear. They were very close to our friend Julius Boos before he passed
a few weeks ago and Joep often corresponds with many of us on this
forum on a near daily basis. In my case I can safely say "daily" since
we've done that for years!

Joep and Marijke run the Emerald Jungle Village in French Guiana and he
is sought out by many scientists for his knowledge of the terrain. h
has discovered many new species and some of the most cherished plants
in my own collection bear his name. There are quite a few plants that
now scientifically bear his name including one of the most sought after
Philodendron, Philodendron 'Joepii'. If you see anything with the
second name "moonenii", Joep was involved! If you ever want to visit
South America with a great guide drop him a note! And when Joep speaks
I can guarantee my eyes and ears are wide open! If you missed his
presentation at our MidAmerica chapter meeting at the Missouri
Botanical Garden you missed an incredible show of plants in the rain
