Hi Carol!

Here's Rhaphidophora celatocaulis, the Shingle Plant of Borneo.

We have a bunch of roadside noid Aroids on the Island. Maybe some folks can figure some out from photos.

Let's see anyone's prize plant!

Well, this WAS one of my prized aroids until our horrid winter that killed so many plants. I think there's one little stem still alive. I don't have a recent photo because my computer crashed a couple of weeks ago and I lost many files and thousands of pictuers. This picture was taken a couple of years ago.

Rhaphidophora tetrasperma, commonly called "Mini Monstera"

Here is Alocasia (?) with bloom. It sits and grows in a jar of water.
I couldn't get it to live in soil, so I put it in this vase.
Rather unusal, I think....

Hi ya Charleen: That looks a lot like my Alocasia 'Frydek' that has been sitting out in the backyard by the fence for awhile. There was also another little one growing up in another container somewhere around here. I need to go look for it ... they go dormant in the winter and I forget all about them. I'm bad about finding empty pots with just soil, thinking whatever was in there died and I throw out the old soil ... I've lost a lot of plants doing that! Grumbling

You see the blooms Lin?? I had it in a pot and it tried to die on me, so I thought maybe I could get roots on it and it would live, here it is blooming. They are not open yet. but Isn't it great??? I like yours too.

Oh yeah, they do put out blooms once in awhile. I even have blooms on Caladiums right now, bulbs I just got this spring in a co-op on DG. The blooms on aroids aren't really impressive to me but they are kinda pretty in their own way I guess.

Did your Alocasia sprout roots in the water? I've rooted lots of things in water before but never tried an alocasia.


Here's a shot of one pot of Caladiums blooming right now.

This is a picture of the bloom/spathe on a Tree Philodendron last July.

A close up of the Caladium flower ... looking at this I guess Aroid blooms aren't so bad after all, LOL.

They are easy to pollinate, too...and grow from seed. Ever try it? I dabble in crossing anthuriums and growing them out....I just like to see seeds grow... Blinking

LOL, Carol ... I have no patience at all, and I have the attention span of a gnat! Never crossed anything in my life (well, except my legs.)

I did try to cross my eyes once when I was a kid Blinking My mom told me to be careful or they would stick that way so I never tried it again. Hilarious!

We all heard that one,Lin. But it worked well to stop us from doing it.
I have Amorps coming up. I was beginning to think the ones I had in the ground were frozen from last winter's cold. But I see them coming up. i love them. Got 7 pots planted and so far 4 is up. I am so happy with them.
I'll get you some pic. I thought I had some.
