  [Aroid-l] Do green spathes assimilate?
From: "Marek Argent" <abri1973 at wp.pl> on 2011.04.19 at 20:58:59(22033)

Many aroids have green spathes and usually they are the tallest parts of the plants.

In deep shade in forests spathes are often green, olive-green, brown, it indicates the presence of chlorophyll.

Some other aroids' spathes turn green as the flowers become pollinated (like Spathiphyllum).

Do the green spathes play a role in assimilation?
