anthurium were largely treated decades ago in Aroideana. I have been
highly disappointed at the over-emphasis of amorphophallus and other tuberous
aroids in the most recent decades, so much so that I occasionally consider
canceling my membership and subscription. Sadly, aglaonema, syngonium,
raphidophora, epipremnum and other genera are only occasionally mentioned these

I received yesterday the latest issue of Aroideana.It is
always the same pleasure each time.If in the past Philo,Anthurium were largely
treated ,but now ,Arum and others mediterranean genus are not missed and the

A second species I collected in north Zambia also

Those african species are not so hard to grow and corm
storage is easier than Asian species.

Without any doubt,I prefer dry and hot summer we had
