[Aroid-l] Xanthosomas Robustum and Sagittifolium

I believe that all the Xanthosomas that you see in Florida are Sagittifoliums. But the plant that Eduardo looked at was a robustum. Here are the pics of the plant he saw that day. Also here is a link to the plants that are grown all over Florida. You can tell the spath is Yellow to off white on the Sagittifoliums and white to pink on the robustum. Telling the difference from atroverins from robustum seems fairly hard. Atroverins tends to have darker bluish green leaves. The new stems come out a dark color and lighten up to the bluish green color the flower is about the same a blue green spath. As for Robustum the stems tend to keep a white dusting.
Eduardo let me know if this looks right to you??
