  What is it?
From: Gary Meltzer <kathann1 at tsoft.com> on 1998.09.03 at 20:35:19(2570)
I have a purple stemmed "taro" that I collected from a creek in Santa Cruz,
CA, about 4 months ago. The owner of the property was uncertain of the
origin of these plants or of their names. They were growing in about
12"-24" of slow moving water and had become rather invasive; an annual
event I understand. At home, I potted them in 12" pots were they grew
within 6 weeks to about 4'-5' high and produced a goldish inflorescence
that was quite beautiful. Every 4 days or so, another flower would emerge
from just above the origin of the preceding flower's source. Of the four
plants that are potted, three of them produced 4 flowers in this way. At
this time, it looks like two of them have set seed as they are not wilting
and beginning to swell.

If I send a photo(s) of these, will someone identify them for me? If the
seeds do develope, I can send them to Aroidiana for distribution. Thank
you, Gary
