Re: Aroids in the Movies

I too tend to take note of plants used as back-drops in movies, and am amazed at the Sabal palms in Viet Nam, and all the cultivated palm species, vining Monstera and Philodendron, Alocasias and other genera of aroids, etc. which seem so very common, even feral on all these many film sets! :--)

many of the big movie lots maintain something which looks like a Home Depot plant selection and use it to flesh out a "habitat" without asking anyone if these plants really COULD be there, which causes great rage among the plant nuts, i gotta tell you, we are collectively a hot blooded group.

There is a nice pot of Sansevierias on a kitchen table in RAGING BULL.

i hope you are allowing for the wonderful California influenced fabrics with the HUGE Monsteras and big inflorescences of aroids all over the place. it made its way to Brooklyn, WE HAD THIS on our sofas. nothing like split leaf Monstera draperies to give a home that period look.
