What are Ariods?
Aroids are from the family Araceae and include many common houseplants like aglaonemas, monsteras, philodendrons, pothos and ZZ plants. While these plants tend to be “low light” indoor plants, they’re often understory plants in the wild.
Aroids come in all different sizes from the extra-large corpse flower to the desk-sized peace lily. You can usually spot them by their colorful, spiky blossoms. Each aroid blossom is made up of numerous tiny flowers clustered together on a “spadix,” that’s found within a curved, leaf-like “spathe.”
Some aroids have special talents, like being able to generate their own heat or being propagated in water. This family has long been swamp-dwellers that were able to adapt to regular floods, one of the reasons they’re an easy-care houseplant.
The key to a thriving garden is healthy media, which is a living, breathing ecosystem. Organic media not only improves the soil structure and its ability to hold onto water and nutrients, it also allows for beneficial microbes to thrive. This reduction of reliance on synthetic chemicals will ensure less runoff into our waterways, harming marine life and water quality. Plant damage threat can also be avoided, ensuring a lush and healthy garden for all.
