Dear Roz:  This is surely Xanthosoma robustum Schott, a common species in Mexico and one which ranges to as far a Costa Rica, I believe.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Aroid ID - Puerto Vallarta (first pic)


Dear friends:


I'm a lurker on the list, but I thought you could help me ID an aroid I saw today - I'm vacationing in Puerto Vallarta.  This was growing by the river - I have no idea if this is native to the area.  I'm going to send three pictures, each in separate e-mails. The one attached here is the big plant.  The next picture is a cloes-up of the spathe, and the last one is a small plant I saw growing by the larger.


I hope my files aren't too large- - if they don't get through, I'll resend.


thanks, and good growing.


-Roz from Los Angeles
