which will involve locating and growing plants in the following
list. If only the genus is given, information on any of the
species will be welcome. The standard references have been
checked,(ie Hortus III, Tropica, and a couple of horticultural
journals). Any information, especially referenced literature, on
culture, sources, and even folklore will be appreciated.
