Thank you for the help.  Now I really want to get a copy of that book.  Hehe.  Thanks for the info as well.  Now that I know where it hails from, I have a better idea of its life history.  Do you know if dry season over there is during their summer or winter?  I assume summer.  Should I remove the tuber/corm and give it a rest as I would a Calla lily or will it be fine in soggy soil I have had it growing in for the last 7 months?

Hi,

Has anyone tried to root Anthurium scandens leaves? Alhough it is very easy to
propagate by stem cuttings, I think its thick leaves might be able to root.

Best,
Marek Argent

I have found with Zamioculcas that they do in fact sit dormant for a long
time, as long as a year before new growth appears. I believe that members of the
same Genera also do the same. I have propagated Gonotopus Boivinii this way as
well and plan to try it with Gonotopus Angustus soon. A friend from Australia
considers them to be weeds because they grow so easily this way for him.


There are experts here that have successfully propagated Amorphophallus in
this way.

Hi,

I haven't tried to root any leaf but I think the species with thick
leaves and veins (like A. haematospadix or A. atroviridis) can root easier.

Maybe anyone knows the answer to my questions?
I planted leaflets of Zamioculcas, the leaves withered, formed new bulbs,
but the bulbs are standing still, they havent't put any new leaf since then.

Dear Friends,

After seeing the photos of your plants leaves, it may be (accordingly to
illustration "A", Plate #44, pg. 168 of TGOA) S. burchelliana. We
used to refer to this var./form/species as S. hastifolia because of the
hastiform shape of the leaf blades.
It is also noted in the same book that it has a dormant season and starts
growing at the beginning of the rainy season.
The only person who can give you a ''for certain'' ID on your
plant is Dr. Eduardo Goncalves in Brazil.
Good Luck and Good Growing.

Julius

I bought it from an ebay vendor. I keep this species pretty wet, and there is
air movement becuase the tank I have it in has a fan attached to it, its enough
to keep the orchids in there happy. I have not seen any evidence of rot from
the tuber or the leaves, and I have had this species flower in the tank.
Although I will not rule out anything at this point.

Dear Windy,

Aglaonema has no toxic sap as found in Dieffenbachia. You can use the plant
without any worry on it poison.

Tom , I had chopped up the lengths of trunk/stem a mate had ripped up out of
the ground . And the sprouts coming out of these bits had been in deep shade so
maybe were looking for the light . They are terrestrials .

Michael Pascall,

Tom , lets see how many I can get ..
P.plowmanii , P. pastazanum , P. gloriosum , P. mamei ; these are the creepers
I know [and grow ] .
I thought P. callosum was , but have heard it could be an epiphyte .
P.pinnatifidum doesn't climb or creep .
P.campii sort of climbs , but I treat it as a terrestrial.


Michael Pascall,
