Hey everyone,

I'm really getting into long leaf aroids but I don't know which one to start with. I want to start slow and then work my way up to Anthurium warocqueanum. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Peace lilies (Spathiphyllum) are one of the easiest, brain-dead simple aroids out there. Cheap too.

Ah. You didn't specify that initially. I wouldn't get fixated on finding a plant with leaves that look a lot like A. war. At that point, your being too picky for a starter/guinea pig plant.

Try some of the Alocasia, Colocasia, or Anthurium andraeanum (this one is an epiphyte).

Do you grow colocasia? I'm thinking about growing some in a stock tank.

Nah. All the ones I know of get far too big for an apt-dweller like me to contemplate.
