Plant lovers meeting!
If you grow aroids or tropical plants and live in Oklahoma,
southwestern Missouri, north Texas, western Arkansas, southern Kansas,
western Louisiana, southeastern Colorado or anywhere people love
growing tropical plants please join us at Myriad Botanical Gardens and
Crystal Bridge on November 21 at 1:00 PM. Anyone and everyone is
welcome to come and bring your tropical plant loving friends for a
great tour of the garden! |
The Myriad Gardens has a fabulous collection of tropical plant species
including more than 100 palm species, a collection of Cycads, Gingers,
Bromeliads, Orchids and aroid species including Philodendron,
Anthurium, Alocasia as well as the exotic Amorphophallus
This meeting is sponsored by the members of the International Aroid
Society that live the region but our goal is to meet people that love
tropical plants while introducing them to aroids! Although we grow and
love aroids almost all of us love to grow plants from the rain forests
of the world. We just want to meet people with an interest similar to
our own. Technically this is the first meeting of the MidAmerica
Chapter of the International Aroid Society but you don't have to join
or be a member to join us for the tour of the garden. We're inviting
members of orchid, cycad and palm groups to join us so bring a friend.
In fact, bring them all!
We've been told there is a possibility that Dr. Tom Croat is hoping to
be able to join us. Dr. Croat has personally collected more than
100,000 wild specimens in rain forests around the world for scientific
purposes and has named many new species to science. This will be a
great chance to meet Tom and ask questions. Since he is a personal
friend I can assure you will find him a warm and kind gentleman besides
the fact he is the world's leading expert in his field! We'll be
updating this post once we have a confirmation.
Some of us will be bringing plants and cuttings to trade and we
encourage you to do the same. Please bring anything you would like to
share with other tropical plant enthusiasts since there will almost
certainly be something there you'll want to bring home.
