Dear Peter, Wilbert and Friends--
Hey Pete---I agree! Imagine this little short-shift, unifoliate little
dwarf of an aroid, exquisitly beautiful as it might be, with only its ONE
cordate leaf (no splits or fenestrations here!), having the audacity to
produce such wonderfully marked, MULTIPLE blooms, AND NOT allowing these
beautifully marked spathes to fall off soon after opening, like some other
self-respecting, TRUE climbing marvels of the Aroid-world have the decency
to do, leaving just a bare, white (but I`m certain quite attractive and
interesting, mind you!) spadix! Some of these climbers may bloom just about
once every twenty to forty years or so, but I`m certain that to experience
the pleasure of seeing such a plain white spathe or bare spadix is well
worth the wait!! :--)> (all in fun, guys!)
Hey, congrats again to all, and good growing!
Hrumph! While I admit that Colletogyne is rather nice I my heart still
flutters most when presented with a colossal Epipremnum or Rhaphidophora...

For all you lovers of the REALLY exquisite (and that only to be found among
tuberous aroids) Albert and I have prepared a page on Colletogyne, a small
gem. Just been rediscovered.
have fun at: http://www.aroid.org/genera/colletogyne/
p.s. all you lovers of climbing aroids, THIS is the moment to switch to the
REAL thing and we won't hold it against you....but it IS the LAST
