  Pollen request
From: magrysbo at shu.edu on 2000.12.15 at 16:18:13(5780)
Hello fellow AEGers and Aroid nuts,
Once again I am in winter windowsill mode with my Arisaemas. Some that
recently have been taken out of 4-5 month refridgeration have been growing
and others, mature tubers, which I tried to time perfectly (you know who
you are, taiwanensis and candidissimum) after months of room temperature
are only just starting to "point". Problem is my Arisaema ringens and a
triphyllum album are in bloom with female inflorescences. Other triphyllums
had shot up quickly to match a consanguineum, which then did not bloom. (I
gotta get more Ari's so I'll always have some in bloom).
I would like to put on pollen on these blooms. Is anyone out there blooming
some now? If you have any males I would like to request some collected
pollen. Whatever species you think would look really wild crossed with
this. (Oh yeah, a sikokianum meant for this coming out of 4 months fridge
promptly rotted). Pollen can be tapped out of the spathe into a plastic
baggie and mailed in a CRUSHPROOF container such as a film canister.
I would really appreciate this and would trade or send results if any
Thank you,
Bonaventure W. Magrys

To Susan Cox,
I'm sorry but I could not respond to your private e-mail (my server could
not get thru to northcoast.com). --------
