The genus' fascination is also increased by a phenomenon unique in Araceae: the change of sex that these plants undergo many times during their lifetime. This book covers all frost - resistant species, whose exotic look makes them great woodland garden plants, and tropical species suited for the cool greenhouse. It provides descriptions of all species, keys for their identification, plus information on their growing conditions in the wild and advice for their cultivation and propagation. - Good second hand copy.
