  Re: [Aroid-l] African aroids?
From: "Marek Argent" <abri1973 at wp.pl> on 2013.06.25 at 19:13:41(22833)

The Mediterranean aroids are usually not counted as African (see the uberlist) at www.aroid.org

I have (or had (or had had :) )) several species.

Still growing 2 spp. of Anubias, Nephthytis afzelii (in fruit, soon seeds), Zamioculcas zamiifolia, Zantedeschia aethiopica and many Zant. cultivars.

I had Anchomanes difformis but the tuber died and some more Anubias that I didn't know how to cultivate them.

I'm looking for Callopsis volkensii and other small (not exceeding 1m of height) species - Arophyton, Carlephyton, Amorphophallus, Arisaema (native to Africa, if any exist, not Asian spp. naturalized there), also species of Arum, Biarum, Arisarum, Ambrosina. I already have Arum hygrophilum (only one tuber).
