Re: Suspected Asian Aroid

Thanks Helmut!  One of my greatest joys is to research new aroids I'm either growing or am interested in growing so please do send all the photos possible and I'll begin the search for good info.  I'm forwarding this to Leland so he can give you his address!

Hi Steve,

I ´ll do my best for the photos. I have to go there (HBV, Botanical Garden of the Vienna University) and will climb up the plant (seven meters).

I also owe the forum photos of an adult Monstera tenuis, which I once have found in the Botanical Garden of Darmstadt (Germany). I hope the plant still exists and I have to ask them to get these pictures. If so, I would be happy, if you also could investigate/publish this wonderful species. Picts of the juvenile Monstera tenuis I have available, as the young shoots run all over my tropical greenhouse and wait to be cut back.

I also have not forgotten that I have promised Leland some rooted cuttings of the Monstera tenuis. I have them available, but unfortunately I have lost the delivery address.

Best regards

Betreff: Re: [Aroid-l] Suspected Asian Aroid

I'd say the consensus is you are very right! Do you have a photo of 
the adult plant I can use on the ExoticRainforest.com website? I'm 
working on the page tonight but really could use photos of the adult 
plant as well as any detail shots including an inflorescence, abaxial 
blade surface, cataphylls and anything else! I'll gladly credit you 
any way you like.

Thanks a bunch!

but this looks very familiar to me. We have one huge plant in the HBV 
(Vienna-University / Botanical Garden), - maybe the only one in 
Europe, - and I am priveleged to cut it back each year (to make use 
of the cuttings). I trade this plant commercially in different sizes (
leaf blades up to two meters - 6 ft - long and 1 meter - 3 ft- wide). 
I once had wrongly identified it as Epipremnum pinnatum, which I do 
know from Australian rainforests. But finally I have learned through 
Peter that it only can be Raphidophora decursiva. If that is in doubt 
or wrong, please let me know! Thanks! Helmut Reisenberger Vienna,

of aroids <aroid-l@gizmoworks.com>Betreff: [Aroid-l] Suspected Asian 
Aroid Pete, if you're out there I'm going to aim this at you since I 
suspect this is a SE Asian aroid. Anyone is more than welcome to 
offer an ID. This cutting was given to me about a year ago but had no 
tag. The blade measures 35cm or just over 1 foot and is subcoriaceous,
glossy on the upper surface and matte on the abaxial surface. The 
petioles are terete (round). I'm including a photo of the stem. Any 
ideas what this might be? Thanks! Steve Lucaswww.ExoticRainforest.com_
