  [Aroid-l] Zamioculcas zamiifolia

Thanks Susan, that and quite a few other changes have now been
made to the page as a result of information that was kindly
provided by Dylan Hannon at the Huntington.Â

The petiole grows from a unique structure beneath
the soil known as tuberous rhizome roots. Tuberous roots
are true root tissue that is swollen possessing tuberous
portions that radiate from a central point known as a crown.Â
The crown serves as the growth point for the petiole and is
effectively the stem. The petiole changes to become the rachis
(RAY-kis) at the point where the leaflets begin to grow creating a
single compound leaf so Marek, you had it correct.

Thanks to all that offered help but a special thanks to Dylan for
his time today! If anyone spots an editing error anywhere on the
site feel free to point it out.


I have a kind lady that tries to find all my errors and we are
having the entire page checked now for typos now but we can always
use the help from growers on this forum! I can tell you for
certain, there is a ton of bad information on the internet about
this plant species!
