Dear Paul,

Yes, confirmation of ones thoughts is always good!  :--)>
The secret to my aroid happines is staying small and growing just a few nice

Best Wishes,



<<<Glad my comments on soil rotting in water etc, matched your experiences.
Always nice to have confirmation of these things <grin>.

I'd need to put another level on my house to grow them I'd hazad, given teh
apparent size of some of these.  I really do not have an indoor plant
friendly house unfortunately.  I grow a lot of stuff indoors udner lights,
but will not be expanding to large amounts of Anthuriums me thinks <big
grin>.  Might try to odd one or two though.

This list is definitely a big benefit for finding out about genera we
aren't familiar with, and of course finding sources of seed for rare little
beasties that we don't have (I have 4 happy little Amorphophallus lewallei
thanks to Wilbert, and two other cold-tolerant species powering along
thanks to someone else).  Wonderful people in these parts!!
