Description

Not so showy, but still fascinating

There are close to 110 genera and 3,300 species of aroids, found mostly in tropical regions. While their flowers are less striking, these plants display some ingenious adaptations. A number of them – dieffenbachias, philodendrons and pothos – make great, hardy houseplants.
