  Amorphophallus sources in Malaysia?
From: "Adao Pereira" miguelporto at mail.telepac.pt> on 2000.06.17 at 00:44:49(4805)

A friend of mine is at the moment in Singapore and he will be visiting
Malaysia in a few days. He is searching Amorphs for me, but he said that he
didn't find any commercial sources yet. Are there any sources in those
countries? If so, where? Maybe I can tell him and he can go there.

I have lived in Malaysia for twelve years and haven't come across any
nurseries that trade specifically in _Amorphophallus_. One may
occasionally come across them by chance in the many nurseries scattered
along rural roads, but their origins are often what we would consider
'shady', and rarely are they ever identified.
However, there is a nursery in Kuching, East Malaysia (your friend isn't
going to Borneo, is he?) which specialises in tissue cultured plants from
the region, especially Nepenthes, but also a *few* _Amorphophallus spp._
from Sarawak.

Hello Alastair & all!

My friend is not visiting Borneo, that's why I asked about other sources of
Amorphs. I already knew Malesiana Tropicals (cause I'm into CP, too!), but
unfortunately he can't go there.
So, let's just hope that he has luck and finds a nursery!

Thanks anyway,
