I did a quick google on Aglaonema costatum, and all I come up with are all these fancy cultivars.
The mother plant, labeled A. costatum, from the IAS show has a growth habit and foliage that looks EXACTLY like Aspidistra lurida Milky Way. Did the vendor forget to label a specific cultivar name on this plant? Or is this the true, unmolested, natural species? (With all those lovely yellow dots.)
So, does anybody have a Bognera to trade? :)

I don't know how many of you were at the Miami IAS show, but there was one vendor selling Aglaonema costatum. I bought the "mother plant" and will be happy to take pictures. I do not know if there are any flowers hiding beneath the foliage, but I will check tomorrow. I wonder, does anybody else grow this plant? It was the first time I had seen this, and of course had to have it.
Tom, did you see this plant? If so, do you still desire photos?
(Note that if you just reply to this message, it won't go to Tom, but
rather to either the entire list [most likely] or me. I will of course
forward anything that comes to me to Tom, but just be aware that if you
want to communicate with Tom directly you'll have to change the address
manually to Tom's e-mail, Thomas.Croat@mobot.org )

Subject: Urgent Request to List members, a strange new collection
I have described a plant collected in a remote habitat near
the Brazilian border in Peru. It was collected by a friend in California
who has been growing it as an acuatic. It has a definitely creeping stem,
rather short petioles and in many respects looks like Aglaonema costatum.
It keyed out to Bognera and I assumed that it was a member of that genus
but Eduardo GonÃalves has some doubts and is wondering if it could have
been an escaped horticultural collection. Although that seems somewhat
unlikely I would like to see any images that any of you might have of
Aglaonema costatum in order to make a better judement. It would be
especially useful to see a close up of the spadix if any of you have that
species in flower at this time.
Thanks in advance for any help that anyone can render.
