Have you searched the National Agricultural Library (NAL) site of the USDA?
It is called AGRICOLA for AGRICultural OnLine Access. Go to
http://www.nal.usda.gov/ag98/ follow the instructions and enter your
keywords. You can then look up the citations in your library, order the
publications you can't find through interlibrary loan, or order them through
the NAL. Please contact me off of the list if I can be of any further
assistance. Good luck!

suitable for a relatively large greenhouse operation for commercial sales.
Since I am interested in aroids and Hawaii, I chose Anthurium.
Does anybody have journal-type articles (this teacher is an academic snob
and won't accept anything from "Sunset," etc.) or other references about
approaches to propagating Anthurium commercially that I could
I've already harvested what the University of Hawaii has available on their
website and affiliated websites, but I need references from other sources,
