Dear Nancy: I should be able to handle the determination of most of these, assuming that they are not just junk hybrids but I can’t afford to try to use things like Facebook
owing to the time it takes to get on (you have to add a password for each and every entry and usually there is nothing there to see). How do you have them organized. If they are in a folder perhaps you could put the entire folder on the MOBOT pdf server where
we could have them all downloaded at once. The other thing is that to name them I would need to have something to refer back to so that I could inform you of the determination. Sometimes it takes more time to make the list than it does to determine the plant.
Ideally if they have numbers and the numbers are in a spreadsheet then I could easily add the names in the list and get it back to you.

Subject: [Aroid-l] help with aroid identification
We have a number of aroids in our “rainforest” housing our live butterflies. Some of them have lost their labels, others were acquired randomly over the years,
etc., so there are a number for which we do not have identifications. I imagine most of them will be fairly common species, but I am not an aroid expert… Would it be okay for me to post photos on this listserve to see if other members can identify them for
us (we are trying to identify and label all of our plant collection)?
If not, does anyone have a suggestion for an all-around aroid expert to whom I could send photos of our unnamed specimens?
Thank you all very much!

Hello all, I know one of you will be able to guide me! I got some Anthurium plants from Ecuagenera last night, and of course they are bare root. I planted them all in a very
well drained soil less mix, and fertilized them with KLN as a root stimulant. I hope I did the right thing and if there are additional things I should do PLEASE let me know. They are under lights but not close to them,they will not burn. They are with a
lot of other plants so they should get some humidity from them but of course they are indoors. Houston is chilly this time of year!
Thank you and hello and hugs to all of you that I know!!!
