Re the two pictures on your web site....
The first Raphidophora (the one on the left with the white veins) looks
the Raphidophora sp I photographed at Fairchild Gardens in Florida.
Fairchild did not key this out to species. It was the best guess of a
gentleman at The Glasshouse Works (http://www.rareplants.com) who, after my
that it was R. celatocaulis.
I will try to post my snap shots on line next weekend and you can see for
your self, but with just a cursory examination of your pictures and mine,
I would say they are the same thing.
Perhaps someone can refer me to a monograph of Raphidophora? I am new to
Aroids and don't have any good reference material yet.
