Default Aroids!!!!!

My aroids have been going great guns. Lots of new growth of some of the anthuriums and philodendrons. I have been getting much bigger leaves on my Anthurium cupulispathum since I trained it over to start climbing up the trunk of a palm tree. Unfortunately I don't know how to post a photograph here the way it is set up asking me for a URL. I am used to just posting directly from my photo program on my computer.

Your pics may be too large, 2MB or smaller I think.

Every version of Windows comes with a program called "Paint", which you can use to shrink your photo. I suggest that you shrink it to 1024 pixel width because that fits nicely on people's screens, and save it as a JPEG, extension ".jpg", which will result in a file size of around 130 KB.

Or, you can use my free image processing software which is much, much more complicated but produces better results (see my profile).

Update:
I tested Paint by shrinking one of my photos to 1024 width and saving as JPEG. The file size was 235 KB, which means you probably will either have to shrink your photo more or use another program that uses more compression. Many programs, including mine, allow you to set the compression level, but, not Paint. But, that does make things more complicated.

Anthurium cupulispathum looks like an awesome big leafed tropical plant.
Some of the photos that I have seen are amazing.
