Hello well I have not bugged the group in sometime so I thought I would fish 
for a few plants I would like to get. By the way my greenhouse is doing 
great. Working on the rock walls each side is  75ft long and 10ft tall its 
going to take me a long time. But I am off to a good start with the 
foundation and all. I plan to take pics of my progress.

Well, I have had great success with many Xanthosomas and have seen PICS and 
heard of larger forms with colorful stems and leafs. Some that look like 
caladiums as well as huged leaf forms that dwarf most aroids.

Now I have manly the most common forms out there that are eaten and a few 
ornamental forms. I would like to know if anyone has any other forms growing 
and most of all pups to spare in a trade or sell.

Looking up Xanthosoma on the net I found many names that I don't know of. 
Here is a list I put a star next to the ones I have. THANKS
