Re: Urospatha and Montrichardia

Dear Mr. Boos:

Found your comments on "dwarf" Montrichardia of interest. I have also found
a short-statured (2.00-2.20 m) stand of Montrichardia growing and blooming
in a Bactris (?) palm swamp on the Caribbean coast of Guatemala. This
species seems to be fairly tolerant of different growing conditions there -
in the same general region, the Westin Hotel "Cayos del Diablo" has a couple
dozen similar-sized stems planted in a sheltered cove just behind the
tideline in muck and coral sand, but basically damp or dry most of the day.
They've been there for five or so years now, so I guess Montrichardia is
more amenable to drier conditions than I would have expected from seeing
them under natural conditions.
