[aroid-l] Missing Lasioids from Fairchild Gdns., Miami

Dear Friends,
A quick note to see if there is anyone out there who can perhaps help me solve a mystery---a couple years ago I gave some rare, wild-collected Urospathas to the then Curator of aroids at Fairchild Gardens in Miami, my friend Craig Allen.    Some may recall my note to this list saying how amazed I was when I saw the plants the following year in such good shape.    More recently when the news got out of Craig`s departure from Fairchild, I asked a good friend in Miami with close ties to Fairchild if he could be so kind as to locate these plants, as I had hoped to request their return to me as no one there as far as I knew had an interest in this group of plants.    He did a dilegent search, but there is no sign of these distinctive plants, nor others in that family that I know were there, such as some hybrid Cyrtospermas, plants of C. cuspidispathum, Lasia spinosa, etc., not even their empty pots. labels, etc which sho! uld have been easy to locate---these were substantial plants!
Does anyone 'out there' have ANY information on where these plants might have gotten to or who might have been given them???
Good Growing!
Julius Boos,
