    Default Araceae

    How many of you are into Aroids? Those cute little and manytime gigantic members of the family Araceae?
    You know, Jack in the Pulpits, Elaphent Ears, Swiss Cheese plants, Anthuriums, Peace lillies, Calla lilies, etc....
    Here are some of mine, and I would love for you to share pics of yours if you have any:
    Agloeanema commutatum, plant and flower, then Alocasia hybrid, then one of my Anthuriums

    Nice foliage on that one eikon! I'm not sure how to get any aroid to bloom if it doesn't want to. All I can say, is be patient.

    I have a couple. I love so I buy them and send them to my daughter in Alabama. Some of the types I have bought are fairly rare and expensive, but I don't have time and energy to take care of them and orchids too.
