Araceae
The Arum Family
Plantae
Araceae is a family of monocotyledonous flowering plants in which flowers are borne on a type of inflorescence called a spadix. The spadix is usually accompanied by, and sometimes partially enclosed in, a spathe or leaf-like hood. The group also goes by the name of Arum family and species in this family are often colloquially known as aroid. This family of 107 genera and over 3700 species is most diverse in the New World tropics, although also distributed in the Old World tropics and north temperate regions. Recent genetic research by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group has shown that the duckweeds, previously treated in a separate family Lemnaceae, also belong in the Araceae family.

Monstera deliciosa
  Monstera deliciosa March 02, 2014
edible fruit. a fruity taste similar to jackfruit and pineapple. The unripe green fruits can irritate the throat and the latex of the leaves and vines can create rashes in the skin, because both contain potassium oxalate: that is the reason why the fruits have to be consumed when the scales lift up. The fruit may be ripened by cutting it when the first scales begin to lift up and it begins to exude a pungent odor. It is wrapped in a paper bag and set aside until the scales begin popping off.

Anthurium
  Anthurium July 09, 2010
Cultivation: Like other Aroids, many species of Anthurium can be grown as houseplants, or outdoors in mild climates in shady spots. They thrive in moist soils with high organic matter. In milder climates the plants can be grown in pots of soil. Indoors plants thrive at temperatures between 60-72 °F / 16-22 °C and at lower light than other house plants. Wiping the leaves off with water will remove any dust and insects. Plant in pots with good root systems will benefit from a weak fertiliz Anthurium

Split Leaf Philodenron
  Split Leaf Philodenron July 06, 2010
Windowleaf was formerly grown in greenhouses in England for the edible fruits, called cerimans or monsteras, and is still cultivated for that purpose (outdoors) in parts of Central America, Australia, California and South Florida. Plants need especially ideal conditions, consisting of high humidity, constantly warm temperatures and bright, indirect light, before they will produce fruit. Plants cultivated for fruit are usually grown on the ground in half shade, like pineapple Medicinal Uses: The Split Leaf Philodenron

Dieffenbachia plants can grow outdoors in tropical climates, but specimens kept as houseplants must be kept indoors during most of the year outside the tropics. Temperatures below about 5˚C (40˚F) can kill the plant. The plant needs light but filtered sunlight through a window is usually sufficient. When the plant is brought home from the nursery, it will likely need repotting. The plant needs moderately moist soil. The soil should be fertilized with either regular liquid ferti Dumbcane

  Peace Lily September 08, 2009
The genus Spathiphyllum is found on the forest floor in the rain forests of tropical America. This explains its ability to cope with poor lighting indoors. Flowers first appear when the plant is mature enough and consist of a large white spathe with a white or pale yellow spadix. Sometimes the spathes are green, an indication that they are modified leaves. The Peace Lily's shiny leaves with their prominent fish-bone pattern are quite attractive. Flowering will be more sparse in poor li Peace Lily

Anthurium is a large genus of about 600- 800 (possibly 1,000) species. Anthurium can also be called "Flamingo Flower" or "Boy Flower", both referring to the structure of the spathe and spadix. TROPICOS lists 1901 types, although some of these are duplicates. It is one of the largest and probably the most complex genus of this family; certainly it is one of the most variable. Many species are undoubtedly not yet described and new ones are being found every year. The specie Flamingo Flower, Boy Flower

  Branco-lírio - Peace Lily or White March 16, 2009
Originally from Colombia, it is easy to grow with attractive leaves and white sail like flowers. There are several varities sometimes found. Likes light but not direct light and unusually will ususally flower better in some shade. Keep at about 60 - 64F (16 - 18C), water and mist frequently, not allowing the compost to dry out. Because of this it thrives better in a clay pot rather than a plastic one. Feed frequently in the summer. In good conditions it can double in size in a season and Branco-lírio - Peace Lily or White

Calla lilies have rhizomes that are not cold hardy. This means that while it can be grown in the average garden, it must be dug up each fall and stored in a relatively warm location. To store the rhizomes of the calla lily, simply dig up the plant in late fall, knock as much dirt off them as possible (but do not wash them) and lay them out on some newspaper to dry out for a few days. Then pack the rhizomes in newspaper in a box. Place the box in a cool (but not cold) dry place. Replant the rhizo Cala-Lilies ,Copo-de-leite, Cala-Branca, Lírio-do-Nilo,
