Dear Friends,

I managed to get some more info. on the other potted, vineing aroid I mentioned, I even have a small cutting which I will grow. I am told that it is brand new, not on the actual market as yet, is being produced by "Craft Nurserys", is being called "Pothos "splash", I hear that they will introduce it to the next big TPIE show in Ft. Laud. . I have the small cutting in front of me, a leaf (all leaves are about the same size at this stage in a FULL pot) is 6" X 4", and is a deeper, darker green as a basic color, with large areas or splashes of a silver-grey color, a really beautiful plant, the markings are much more 'random' than on the R. cryptantha, and the petioles though short (2 1/2") are visible and not a shingle-type plant, no pulverinus like in the common yellow-and-green "Pothis', and with a leaf sheath almost from the base to where the blade begins. Of course, being in tissue culture, EVERYONE will soon have it.. The texture is thick, almost like soft leather. I wonder what genus it belongs in??

Rhaphidophora cryptantha looks very similar to Piper ornatum.
