More IAS show information

Aroiders, more good show info - and more yet to come. Stay tuned ...
as usual, see http://www.aroid.org/show/ for more info or to register.

No plant show worth the name is complete without information being 
communicated. One of the founding goals of the IAS is the dissemination of 
information, correct information, about aroids. Among the types of 
information where we excel are horticultural practices and techniques, and 
proper plant identification, whether for rare species or common ones.
Aside from the innumerable private conversations among attendees (which is 
a real strong point for us), several more formal presentations are 
conducted on Saturday afternoons by knowledgeable individuals. This year's 
topics are as follows.
1. LariAnn Garner will present an audio-visual program called "The Most 
   Popular Plants You Never Heard Of." Who can resist a title like that? 
   LariAnn is one of our more popular members and her presentation is sure 
   to be entertaining as well as informed by years of hands-on experience 
   with our favorite green friends.
2. Scott Wade will be giving a horticultural program as well, entitled 
   "Why Basic Aroid Botany Matters". Since a large number of our members 
   and potential members are mainly growers and appreciators of success 
   with plants, this one-two punch will be right on the money. Both 
   programs are entirely suitable for those who are just beginning, but 
   may be intimidated by all the expertise around them. We strive to make 
   aroid culture accessible to all. A nice, thriving aroid is a wonder to 
   behold and satisfying to the soul.
3. Finally, we tap into one of the leading aroid taxonomists for a look at 
   a program called LUCID. Tom Croat has been identifying and naming new 
   aroids for a zillion years. The LUCID program from CATE Araceae at Kew 
   was devised to facilitate idenfication of aroid species for everyone, 
   even if you are not a taxonomist. Dr. Croat will be our guide to this 
   tool for correctly identifying our aroids.

Come to the IAS lectures. No matter how much you know, there's always 
something more to learn.
