Aglaonemas...very much an overlooked genus in this group, with so many of us Amorpho-freaks, Anthurium fanciers, and one very vocal Spathi-phile. I love those aroids you don't see in every shopping mall lobby or doctor's waiting room (obviously, that lets out P. bipinnatifidum). Aglaonema is a genus I would love to see in its natural habitat, blooming, with a crowd of pollinators around. I find I grow fewer and fewer houseplants as the years go by, because plants inside a house, detached from their ecological niches, are of less and less interest to me. One day I shall find the wild Aglaonema....
