I wanted to pass this along to everyone. Many of
you have likely never met Joep Moonen, but to several of us he is a
dear friend, especially Dr. Croat, Ron Weeks and Julius Boos. Joep and
I have been trading email almost daily for nearly two years and
although I've never had the chance to shake his hand he is certainly a
dear friend to me. He often verifies facts for me for my website as
well as furnishing photographs.
If you don't know, Joep is Dutch and runs a
center in French Guiana that takes plant and animal nuts into the rain
forest of French Guiana, northern Brazil and Suriname. He has quite a
few plants named after him including Philodendron moonenii,
Anthurium moonenii and the highly sought after Philodenron
"joepii" which is not a species but am unusual natural hybrid. Please
remember Joep Marijke and Bernie during this tough time for the family.
