Went Aroid hunting the other day and came up with this, among other things....
In the third picture I see a cane, so my guess is Dieffenbachia sp
i agree with dieffenbachia. nice one, ed!
Ed, the only way you will know for certain is to wait for the plant to produce a spathe and spadix. I'd say Dieffenbachia as well but I can see similarities to an Aglonema. The spathes are radically different. My big Aglonema produced a ton of spathes just a few weeks ago but that isn't a plant I grow in the atrium. It was given to us as a "house plant" and it lives in the living room! Russ would know (Bluesea) but for some reason he has been very quiet lately. This appears to be a hybrid.
Thanks guys, my guess also, I'd just like to know which hybrid it is??
Where has Russ been anyway?
if it IS a deiffenbachia, it must be a hybrid - i've not seen that coloration before.
it's very nice though! and i really don't like variegated stuff too much...
I thought I seen it in Deni Bown's book, but I have lent it out!! You don't know how much you miss something untill you don't have it...
But then again, maybe its not in there?
Nice one Ed , I think it is an Aglaonema ,, leaves look to small to be a Dief'
Mic, thank goodness you are back!! There are quite a few threads that need your input. I said so by name in one!
G'day Mick, yeah its a funny one. Have you seen any up there before?
I only found this, and other aroids, because of a feature I was playing around with the other day. I punched in "horticulture" into the GPS and it came up with the "registered" (to that GPS anyway) nurseries closest to me!!
The first one I picked up a Xanthosoma lindenii and the next one this!
Cool feature, but could become expensive...
lol, yeah that little game could become quite expensive...and pretty quickly, too!!
This plant looks like a variegated form of Aglaonema modestum: Check the link below:
Hope this helps!
Not very plant educated yet, but the first two made me thing Hosta, until the third with the woody cane stalks...
Can Hosta cross with Dieffenbachia? I also took care of lots of aglo's when I did the interior plant care position, and the petiols, stalks look completely different, and it's hard to tell, but doesn't seem quite as succulent as the ones I saw here in the states (at least the ones the vendors in the midwest recieved).
After comparing it with LariAnn" URL picture, I agree with her and with "trikus" who also id it as an Angloanema
ED , I have not seen that plant up here . Aglaonemas will become more popular as the new super coloured hybrids from Indonesia & Thailand start getting readily available .
But the simple old species are just as great , I am still getting my collection to gether ,, will trade you a bit of that one when it warms up .
Hostas do not do well in warmer climates , they are fantastic foliage plants and I wish I could grow them , they are much larger than Aglaonmeas though .
Thanks LariAnn and Mick!!
Good to see I have a species for a change, and I will put one aside for you Mick for Spring...
Hi this plant is Aglaonema modestum Shingii. I have two forms of it. It is being sold by asiatica as faint heart.
Thanks for the input vegas!!
oh, yeah! thanks, vegas!!! now i can get one :)
Are they fairly common over there Joclyn?
Rare as Ed, looking at the price asked here ;;
Interesting Mick. I still have one put aside for you mate, to swap, and looks like I'll be going back to get more lol ; )
ed, i don't know how common they are here. it's just that asiatica is in the same state as me - and there's still time to get an order in before it's too cold to ship :)
Ed, if you are still around , those tips you sent are doing well .Just gave it a top dress and fertlize . One leaf has a white splash on it , hope fore a sport , these have been known to do so .
google tells me it could have been revised a bit . modestum or simplex ? Though the bicolour leaf form is registered as 'Shingii'
