back from brazil (and worsleya)


dear aroiders,

i'm back from brazil.  it was truly a wonderful 3-weeks, running around the
atlantic rainforest collecting gesneriads.  but we also got to see lots of
aroids, mostly philodendrons and anthuriums.  the highlight of this trip was
certainly visiting the botanical garden and sitio burle marx in rio.  at the
botanic gardens, they have a nice anthurium collection, which unfortunately
is not labeled.  at burle marx, the highlight was to see those 20 ft tall
Montrichardias.

in the "restinga" (sandy dunes) outside rio, i collected a small anthurium
growing in sand. does anyone know what species it might be?

as for Worsleya, we didn't get to the hills where they grow.  but a friend in
sao paulo grows it in his greenhouse.  all i can report is that in 20 years,
it never bloomed.
