Dear Roz,

It is NOT Tsuh Yang who thinks that Philo`s, etc. are unworthy aroids, but our great, omnipotent " Lord Phallus", Wilbert Hetterschied, it is he who is deeply involved w/ the Amorphophallus group and their allies, all monophyllums.   All of this is done tongue-in-cheek, all in a good spirit of great fun, I THINK Wilbert can appreciate a beautiful Anthurium or Philodendron as well as his stinkey plants (though he would be VERY loath to admit to it!)
