This guys giving me some variegated realness. I was totally not expecting that. Also his variegated parts are a littLe burned by the grow lights. We don't get a ton of light in the winter.

Your plants look FAB! It would be impossible for me to show you ALL my plants LOL but I'll pick some. I grow a wide variety of aroids. I am hoping OTHERS will also step up and show some stuff off!

I don't mean this in any bad way. I know I am lucky to have what I have. But my mission in life on this aroid forum is to show people that there are a LOT MORE aroids that are worth growing than what is commonly available NOW (often at exorbitant prices).

If you have ANY compulsion to collect aroids, pass the commonly available (even if presently expensive) by and collect plants that are not so common. Its very rewarding LOL

Which plants would you suggest for those of us who would like to try something new and not commonly grown? I'm up for it.

I would suggest Anthurium veitchii. You can grow it in a basket with either just long fiber sphagnum moss, or chunky aroid mix. It is an epiphyte. A lot of people don;t know that and try to grow it in soil. But it will adapt to a high light house environment if given adequate humidity, and eventually gets really RAD long leaves!

Alocasia Silver dragon. I got two plugs in September, and it's doing surprisingly fine despite the winter
Thumb of 2020-02-29/hva2016/5effdf
Anthurium Clarinervium. That's the only anthurium that is doing fine at my place. I had several others, but had to give them up as I can't provide them with enough humidity

I would also suggest Anthurium andreanums. These are readily available, and in addition to being easy to grow, they come in a ton of nice colors. They most commonly have the reds at box stores, but online, you can order plants in all shades. A really nice one is Midori, the spathe is a sort of chartreuse green. And there is one I have called Maxima Verde that is really cool. The ones called Obake are very neat, but they are harder to find. This is a little purple cutie
Thumb of 2020-02-29/Gina1960/20a28f

They have one now that is almost black, its such a deep purple. A person could build an entire collection of these colorful plant, and they do well in the house. Pink Obake

Thumb of 2020-02-29/Gina1960/07aa26


Some of the bird nest anthuriums are nice, and if you have long term space, to let them grow large, they can be showpieces. There are smaller growing ones, like A. crenatum, which won't take over the house. Anthurium Marie is nice, too, and while it gets large, it will take it a while. There is also one called Water dragon that is commonly available at auction and isn't too expensive.

Alocasias are nice indoors, and can be readily divided and shared when they start to outgrow the pots. Helena's plants are so well grown! Just beautiful. COlocasia and Xanthosoma do not do as well in the house as ALocasia. But you can let them go dormant in the winter in a warm dry container and have them as patio or porch plants in summer. There are a lot of nice ones....this one is called Midori

Aglaonemas are also worth looking at. (Chinese evergreens). There are the very common varieties that have been around for years, the box store and nursery standards, but there are a ton of others, including some cool species plants, available online. I just got one I have wanted for a long time...Pink Dalmation. It was $16 and its big and nice, actually 2 plants in the pot! The 'new' ags which are now 2 seasons old from Costa Farms in the box stores that have the red on them are $12.99. Last time I saw a Pink Dalmation it was like $35 and I passed so I was happy to get this one. Google species aglaonema and there are some cool ones. Sometimes they are available through terrarium/vivarium supply places

While the common forms of Syngonium (the green ones and the one called White Butterfly) are invasive here, there are some very cool SYngoniums around in some nice colors and patterns. And there are some SPECIES plants that are unusual and worth collecting. Syngonium are very easy to grow.

Gee I don't have any Chinese evergreen or anthuriums or alocasia (have a couple bulbs from outside last summer). I need a larger home! Lol

Your plants are beautiful! Your Monstera Brandi is really Philodendron brandtianum LOL. Aglaonemas make great houseplants because they can be so colorful. They add brightness.

There are some smaller growing plants like Anthurium bakerii, Anthurium rupicola, Philodendron wendlandii x imbe (wend-imbe for short) and Anthurium gracilis that can sometimes be obtained relatively cheaply from Terrarium suppliers.

I knew it was a philo but somehow my fingers typed monstera lol

I've seen I think it's a tricolor aglaonema. Looks like camouflage. Beautiful but way out of my price range!

I'll have to look into some of those others you mentioned. I have seen beautiful anthuriums, if I can find a small one cheaply I may see how it does here in my home.

I gave the Tricolor. I have had it for years. It was cheap back in the day, I mean cheap. Cannot understand why it is so expensive now

Beautiful plants Helena and Mariedorer!

I've actually been wanting to try an anthurium called "plowmanii" for a while. I heard that's a catch all term for birds nest. I saw one a while back and have been thinking about it ever since. Here's my aglalonema, I don't know who it is. It's much larger now but my recent photo looks a bit blurry. And then the plowmanii that I wish I'd bought.

You are thinking of Anthurium hookeri as the catch all. Anthurium plowmanii is a distinct species, I have 4, they are really nice growers
