Re: [aroid-l] Monstera Deliciosa var. Rubra Fraud

My name is Joe Dana from California. Regarding the Monstera Deliciosa var. Rubra. There is no such thing. I know the person who instigated the fraud. Dave Gordon in Long Beach, California. He is somewhat of a wise guy who likes to play tricks on people. He is one of those people who you can't take seriously. The photo is just from an old fashion film negative. He is still probably laughing.


Joe Dana

JOE! listen, i cannot do photoshop type stuff. but if i wanted to pull off this fraud, the first thing i would do would be to get a white variegated monstera with lots of white....actually i have such plants------ and water it with red food colouring!!!! it would eventually bleach out, but what the heck! food colouring is cheap!

remember the high school experiment where you split the stem of a white carnation and placed half of it in blue tinted water, half in red, to show the vascular action of the plant?????

and Joe, how have you been, good to see your name again!
