(Postponed: Panel discussion on growing Aroids in the SF Bay Area featuring Paul Licht, Bill Weaver, Dan Levin and Albert Huntington.)

Instead: Dylan Hannon from the Huntington Botanical Gardens will give a talk on Colombia and some of the many Aroids therein. Colombia is right in the center of tropical Aroid diversity, and has been a difficult place to visit, so Dylan's talk will be an unique opportunity to learn more about this fascinating area. Dylan also mentioned he would be bringing a few plants from the collection at the Huntington to share. Refreshments will be provided.
