Re: [Aroid-l] Aroid-L Digest, Vol 37, Issue 9


We joke about growing this plant indoors. I gave one to my father here in S. 
Florida as a house plant 4 years ago. He has watered it 5x in 4 years. He 
often out of town for months at a time. The only thing he has ever done to 
it is repot it once. It's the closest thing to a plastic plant there is.
Apparently the only way to kill it is to overwater it.
