Re: Xanthosoma lindenii
Thanks for writing me about my little find. I paid $9.95 for
it. A great price I thought considering it's size and health.
The leaves are almost one foot long and in great shape.

K-Mart and Walmart when nurserymen in Florida get over stocked.
Xanthosoma lindenii has been in the foliage plant industry for 20
from Tissue Culture labs. Although it was reclassified as
lindenii based on Floral Characteristics, old names are hard to
Xanthosoma Lindenii was the first plant I grew in my nursery when
started in 1981.

By the way, how much did you pay for this 3 gallon pot
of "Tropical Foliage" at K-Mart?
