Re: aroid hybrid
looks like small Sauromatums grown in some combination of lower light, richer soil, crowding. My venosum "volunteers" regularly produce multiple leaf stems. I'd wait till I see the flowers for sure. Can't seem to get rid of Pinellia pedatisecta here either...hmmm...maybe I've got hybrid offspring getting ready to take over Cliffwood Beach!
You've successfully made an intergeneric cross.
Now let's think about the new genus name according to the botanical
× Sauronellia (if the genus Sauromatum will be back) or ×Typhonellia if
venosum will stay in Typhonium.
What do you think?
