Marcin,

I can provide JPG scans of Pseudohydrosme for you to look. If you need
more (originals for printing purposes etc.) let me know. Other than
that, Pseudohydrosme has been discussed in one of the older Aroideana
volumes. I am sure somebody comes up with the volume number, I don't
have it at hand.

Cheers,
Wilbert

Dear Marcin,
All the information you want about Pseudohydrosome can be found in the new
bible of Aroids, Genera of Araceae, by Mayo, Bogner, and Boyce. At the
back in the photo section of the book is a fine photograph of the
infloresence of this handsome species.

Hi Marcin,

Have just been in the library browsing through Exotica
volumes 1 and 2. Huge, fat, heavy books..do you know them ?
There are pictures of the plant on pages 228 and 303 and some text
which states.................
native to Equatorial Africa and Gabon, fleshy tuber with 25cm chalice
like inflorescence, bright yellow with red-purple inside.
Dissected leaf appears after flowering.
Cultivation......min.62F (16C), filtered light, evenly moist soil
kept dryer when dormant.

As Victor said this is one great looking aroid. Do you grow it ?

cheers,
Rob.

Dear Aroiders,

Does anyone have experience in propagation of Amorphophallus with
'in-vitro' culture and would like to share with me with this knowledge.

Kind regards
