No Spaths here
From: Susan Cooper coops at execpc.com> on 2001.05.30 at 20:19:36(6633)|
Nope, no Spaths. And only a few Arisaema, Alocasia (barely alive),
Dracontium & Anchomanes. Many unknowns. Many peanuts in my planters from
those dang squirrels!
Mostly Amorphophallus, the finest, best looking, most intelligent, and best|
driver of any plants I know! (oops, got carried away there). No
Anthuriums, either (shhh about that, I might get booted out of the IAS)
Yes, I am an odd one!
Maybe I should start an Aroid advice column. Lord P could help!
If anyone has any Aroid questions, my advice is: dump it out and get some
Amorphophallus! heeeheeee(And lets not go down that road again- what is the
plural of Amorpho?!)
Seriously, just because I only have my favorites doesn't mean I can't
admire the other, (lesser) Aroids. And I'm sure we're all like that.
Aroids are fascinating in their diversity!

Sue ,If you only have Amorphophallus species , that means you do not have
any plants to play with when they go dormant !
Ron , we do not have very many different Spaths here , and the ones we do
have do not like this dry season .
Not one drop of rain all month !!

Not all my plants went dormant. And during the winter I stare at the
tubers, and rearrange them, and... ooh, I need to get a life. I also have
carnivorous, clivia, aristolchia, cactus, brugmansia, soon worsleya, and
others to try and keep alive in winter.
That Michael. Either he is drowning in rain or in a drought. Ron, if I EVER
come across a spath, it will be on it's way to the auld land! And maybe
have a few tubers hidden in the soil, kyuck, yuck.
So what are the rules on sending plants to Ireland? Do I need a
phytosanitary certificate? I've never gotten one, wouldn't know how,
although I know it is in the archives of Aroid-L

finally labelling it so...

Thank you Susan!
If you should get ANY unusual Spaths, please let me know as kindest friends
in the Americas are acting as "centralising points" so that now & again a
decent parcel of plants can be sent with a phyto in one air parcel to
Ireland. I am trying to get an "open permit" to allow all plants WITH
phyto certs in automatically, and SOME without to be inspected on site at
intervals as I did in UK. I will know in July!
You are kind
