Oh, yesss !!! How about three or four
articles for the next Aroideana –
checklists, speculation, disagreement about geography, culture, special plants
that everyone should know . . . Maybe six or seven articles, maybe an African
issue. Ahhh, my heart sings ! Derek

If we're stretching Africa then should
include Arisarum vulgare, A. simorrhinum, Eminium spiculatum, and Biarum
Being tediously pedantic, the Moroccan Arum
hygrophilum is a separate species (as yet unpublished: Arum maurum (Braun-Blanq. & Maire)

As part of Africa is on the
Mediterranean, I would think that Arum occurring in Morocco
(Arum hygrophillum Boiss & Arum italicum Miller) and Libya (Arum
cyrenaicum Hruby) might be included in your list of African aroids.

Subject: [Aroid-l] African aroids?
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?
