Subject: [Aroid-l] Fw: Epiphytes. And I
may be nuts!
Well, now I've got more to respond to! Thanks to all
of you who support me in the effort. I just want to learn about my
plants and attempt to share what I can find out. All of you are too kind
so let's let this one just die. And especially to the botanists and
honest-to-goodness experts on Aroid l, thanks for all your help!
As for Tom's question, Steph and I are great! I'm
stronger than I've been in years. I used to be on 4 blood pressure meds
and now none! My BP is normal and all the kidney and anti-rejection

Leland, I'm attaching two larger photos of the plant here

nummularifolius (Blume) Ching and the plant was published In: Enumeratio
Plantarum in 1828. If any of you know anything, especially scientific,
please send me the info! I found it on JSTOR but I don't have access to
The second plant on the epipyphte tree of a club moss is
Huperzia phlegmaria (L.) Rothm.,
common names: Lycopodium fern,
Coarse tassel fern, and Tassel fern. Again, this one is not an
aroid. I've done a page on that one but need a scientist to verify my
information before I publish it to the net. If you collect club mosses
and know anything you are welcome to offer critical corrections. The
page is still not public but the link to that one is here:
Thanks again to
everyone! All I can say is I hope "holly", male or female, finds some
peace in the world.
From your small photo, your species looks
Huperzia nummilarifolia... This is looking at a
plant...but, it is a distinctive
