Hi Joep and Tom and Eduardo,  Great article here for Aroideana. Perhaps Jay in Central America to expand the coverage a bit (is the situation similar or are there interesting differences …?)   Derek

Morning Tom,


I reconize four different Dieffenbachia's in FG:

1 D. humilis

2 D. sequine

3 D. ornatum (small and hard to keep in culture !)

4 D. spec. : the big (5 feet tall) tree like dieffenbachia.


I hope you have time to look at some good Dieffenbachia spots when you are visiting in 2011 - and you can help me giving the right names.


Have a nice day,          Joep

Dear Joep:

            I think that I have two species in the Guianas if I am not misremembering.  One of them is probably D. spruceana or at least a very close relative.

The first picture looks identical to my Aglaonema which has been identified as A. brevispathum hospitum. 

The monkey is gorgeous - what type is she? Thank you for sharing! That Dieffenbachia is something else. I love it!

Dear Eduardo & friends,


This plant in my collection in Guayana Francesca looks like the Aglaomena or Bognera in Santourys mail. I collected it locally but did not register where. I often collect plants on tourist trips but have not allways the time to write things down.



Dieffenbachia spec FG.

I think these Dieffenbachias on the coest of FG are also of Amerindian origin.




Detail of the same Dieffenbachia. They grow among other Amerindian plants like Caladiums etc.



At least a picture of Anoucha that went on our last Oiapogue expedition in September. She is a hunting victim, confiscated by IBAMA and given to our boatsman to raise. She is adorable. 


have a nice day, tchao        Joep
