Hello again, fellow aroiders,
I have been wondering today about African aroids. Those of us who grow tropical aroids will be aware of the genera of the American tropics, i.e. Caladium, Xanthosoma, Philodendron, Anthurium, Monstera, Spathiphyllum, Dieffenbachia, et al.; and the Southeast Asian genera, Epipremnum, Aglaonema, Colocasia, Alocasia, Cyrtosperma, and most of the Amorphs. But Africa seems almost like the Lost Continent. Other than Zantedeschia and some of the Amorphs, what African genera are widely known in cultivation? The biodiversity of Africa has long fascinated me, but it seems like the most difficult continent to find out much about. Who here grows African aroids besides Zantedeschia and Amorphs?
