Steve, 'your favorite' reference book
Graf's Exotica says this about renauxii: "(Brazil: Santa Catarina);
pretty and decorative slow climber with strong creeping stems 1-2 in.
thick; stiff petioles hold the concave, soft-leathery, lanceolate,
12-14 in. long, with base generally cordate, and blunt apex, brilliant
dark green with pale midrib and with translucent edge and densely
nerved; spathe white inside."
If you don't have a photo, I'd be happy to mail you a photocopy of the
single black and white from the book. Of course knowing Graf as we do,
there's always the chance this may not be renauxii at all.
P. nangaritense is new to me.
Desperately need some rain here. It is our 'dry time' with hurricane
season starting 1 June, but this is
record-setting drought, with wildfires.
Hope all is well there. Russ
