  Dear Pete and Friends,

  (I KNEW that you would come through for us, Pete!)
  Remember, Friends, Pete and the Botanical community are still wanting blooms, infructesences, seeds, in fact any fertile material of this complex of plants.    Fresh blooms should be preserved in alcohol for convenience.  I suspect that it blooms HIGH in trees where you see it sort of drop  offshoots or it/they may be the main growth shoot that fall and curve away from the tree, they are generally about 6-10 ft. long, very densely leaved w/ full-sized leaves.    Because of the yellow and green color of the foliage, the spathes are almost impossible to observe.   HOWEVER---in two cases that I know of this plant has bloomed in the adult size but on relatively short 'support-trees', so keep your eyes open!


  >>Hi all

  Epipremnum aureum is the correct name for the plant cultivated as Golden
  Pothos, Devil's Ivy, etc. The correct name and synonomy is:

  Epipemnum aureum (Linden & André) G.S. Bunting, Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 50
   (1964, '1963') 28

  Epipremnum pinnatum (L.) Engl. cv. Aureum (see Nicolson, Allertonia 1 (1978)
   Pothos aureus Linden & André, Ill. Hort. 27 (1880) 69 - Scindapsus aureus
   & André) Engl. in Engl., Pflanzenr. 37 (IV.23B) (1908) 80 - Rhaphidophora
   (Linden & André) Birdsey, Baileya 10 (1963, '1962') 159 - [Rhaphidophora
   (Linden & André) Furtado, Gard. Bull. Singapore 20 (1964) 379, comb.
   Epipemnum aureum (Linden & André) G.S. Bunting, Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 50
   (1964, '1963') 28 - Type: Ill. Hort. 27 (1880) pl. 381.
  Epipremnum mooreense Nadeaud,  J. de Botanique 13 (1899) 6 - Type: Nadeaud

  Epipremnum pinnatum is a different and separate, although related, species.
  It has a HUGE synonomy, which I won't bore you all by posting here, but can
  send to anyone who is interested to see it.

  I don't know of anyone presently growing E. falcifolium, which is an endemic
  species in Borneo.
