  Re: Soil mix

Duh, hello!! Just to qualify some of my statements about soil mixes, I've
realized that when I think of Aroids, I mentally don't include the
terrestrial Amorph's and the like, and many of you folks may have these as a
primary interest, and may even grow no other Aroids. My interest is mainly
in Philodendron, Monstera, Syngonium, Aglaonema, etc, and my impression is
that I'm a distinct minority among Aroid growers. Emphasis and interest has
definitely switched to the tuberous Amorph relatives in the Society and I'm
constantly forgetting this. Soil mixes with large grain sand, or other
aggregates are perfectly appropriate for the Amorph group.

So please excuse my 'narrow mindedness' in my comments concerning aggregates
and Aroids.
