  Re: [Aroid-l] Zamioculcas zamiifolia
From: "Steve Lucas/Exotic Rainforest.com" <Steve at ExoticRainforest.com> on 2010.11.29 at 20:59:32(21667)
The info on the page about Zamioculcas zamiiofolia is
specific to that plant. I explain the differences in stems and
petioles as well as the differences in tubers, corms and bulbs here:


Dylan Hannon just explained the difference in the petiole and the
rachis and I will be working on the page as soon as time permits to
update the info. The petiole grows from tuberous roots which is not
a true tuber. At the point where the leaflets begin to join the
stalk the petiole becomes a rachis and is a somewhat unususual form
of a compound leaf. I am corresponding with Dylan now to make sure
I get all the info correct.
