Re: [Aroid-l] Unusual Caladiums

The 'Thai Caladium' link doesn't work on my browser either, and its my 
site :-)  That part of the site was going to be a gallery of several 
hundred thai caladium photos.  My contact was very enthusiastic and had 
sent 50 or so photos and was supposed to be doing a lot on the thai 
side.  Haven't heard anything in ages and have pretty much given up on 
the thai caladiums for now (I will see if anything has happened, but 
doubt it).  

There aren't many nurseries there growing the Caladiums as export 
bulbs, instead the really good stuff is usually just sold as small 
plants, and often rarily sold at all.  The few nurseries that do export 
are growing the less than stellar varities.  Everytime something 
promising comes along Caladium wise it just falls apart.  I had high 
hopes this go round, but alas..  Its a shame because some of the 
varities that are over there are incredible and would be well received 
but aren't even in the thai caladium books.  maybe one day.
