  Amorphophallus kerrii
From: Don Martinson llmen at execpc.com> on 2000.04.14 at 16:54:41(4375)
Can anyone (Wilbert?) give me any information on Amorphophallus
kerrii. I cannot find it on the list at the IAS Website. I have
just become the owner of one!

Don,

Try A. yunnanensis. Kerrii is a synonym. See Aroideana v.19.

Don,

A. kerrii is a synonym of A. yunnanensis.

Dormant tubers of Amorphophallus kerrii, 2000 Kaichen A-103, (description,
images?) should be kept refridgerated until spring (mid-April here for the
first outdoor Arisaemas, excluding nepenthoides) or should they be potted
immediately. Can they be planted outdoors here now, if so how deep if then
covered by 6-12 inches of manure (other aroids love it).
Any information much appreciated.

Why would you refrigerate kerrii??

Dear Mark, Bonaventure:

FYI...the plant that Chen Yi shipped as Amorphophallus kerrii A-103 last
year was Amorphophallus albus.

Dear Tony,
So what are the dormancy requirements for albispathus? Also, are 1999s
A-101 and A-102 what they are supposed to be? The leaf and stems looked a
lot like konjac.

Dear Bonaventure:

In 2000, the plants sent by Chen Yi as Amorphophallus stipitatus
(A-101/00) were A. yunnanensis.

The plants sent as Amorphophallus kerrii (A-103/00) were A. albus (not A.
albispathus)

The plants sent as Amorphophallus sp. 1 (A-102/00) were A. konjac

All of these plants seem to have a typical dormancy with no cold temps
required here. Lord Hetterscheid would be able to address any other
peculiarities with these species.
