Hi Paul and everyone,

Aglaonemas are the rave in Thailand nowadays, and although Philippine 
hybridizers had introduced several nice hybrids, the place to find the most 
sought after ones is Bangkok. A tidbit to whet your appetites, a couple of 
months back, three newly grown hybrid seedlings as a package went for one 
million baht (a little more than US$20,000) to a Malaysian enthusiast who 
reportedly gifted them to the Sultan of Brunei. Of the three, the most 
valuable was said to be the one with leaves as red as the red poinsettia. 
The other two are a pinkish-leaved one and a yellow-leaved one.
