Who had done the chromosomes experiment for Typhonium or known the number
of chromosomes? Please tell me anything about it,won't you?
Thanks a lot.

Dear ?,
Be forwarned, Typhonium would appear to be a genus in need of a lot more
work to 'sort it out', in my humble opinion several unnamed genera may be
'involved' in this complex group, and this is reflected by the recorded
chromosome counts, which I will give directly from TGOA.---"Chromosomes:
2n, 18, 20, 26, 36, 52, 54, 65, >100 (14) ".
You should also write directly to Vic Soukup at --
Vic MAY be able to shed a little light about relationships within this
complicated group of plants, he has been working on their chemical

Good luck,

Well, there is indeed T. flagelliforme, a weed, but if you saw that species
in Vietnam, I dunno.

I most certainly did see it in Vietnam, in 1994, in Hua Bin province.

Hello Friends,
T. trilobatum sometimes grows in wet ditches in Trinidad, W.I. where it was introduced back in the 1800`s. I guess it can grow as aquatically as say a Colocasia esculanta or Canna Lily.
