  No Spaths here

Nope, no Spaths. And only a few Arisaema, Alocasia (barely alive),
Dracontium & Anchomanes. Many unknowns. Many peanuts in my planters from
those dang squirrels!

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

well, as if this discussion hadn't deteriorated into OT long ago... so i'm
finally labelling it so...

susan, where did you get your Worsleya?

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

Thank You!
