  Julius, a plain Jane 'type' aroid that resembles a 'dull green 
Spathiphyllum with a nondescript bloom' can be a beauty in some eyes, right ? ;)  An odd 
monotype that is considered related to Dieffenbachia, found in the remotest 
parts of Western Amazonia, and reportedly hard to cultivate!  Thats just part of 
the reason why these 'boring' little aroids interest us.  
  I do have a special interest in the Neotropical Aroids though.  The S.A 
Homalomenas and Schismattoglottis Really fascinate me, although most of those are 
hard to get and grow as well.  Alloschemone, should I go any further..?  
  Well I am upset I missed Eduardo's slide lecture last year.  I was at the 
show/sale but couldnt make it to the night's events.  I would have killed to 
see Bognera growing in the wild like that!  Plus to hear and see the details of 
trips to the field... Will Eduardo be at this years show?(I know he wont be 
speaking, but perhaps just there?)    
Thanks so much for your advice,  Michael Mattlage
