  Amorphophallus cuttings
From: Floral Artistry jjingram at pacbell.net> on 2001.08.14 at 20:28:00(7240)
Can someone clue me in as to how to start Amorphs from leaf cuttings? Can
the bulbs be divided such as a begonia?

Some bulbs definately can be divided (I cant speak for all of them)..... I have never done this on purpose, but I have dropped bulbs (A. salmoneus, and others) that have shattered into many pieces. All the pieces planted out, produced plants.

I would assume that as long as there is an aux. "bud" (eye) of some sort, and some tuber tissue left, it will work.

John,
The process that I've used in the past is somewhat different that what
others use.

Alan,

This process obviously removes a fresh new leaf. What does this do to the
tuber that you have removed it from? Amorphs only send up one leaf each
season generally don't they? Does that tuber without the leaf then die
because it can't feed for that growing season?

Thought it was worth asking.

Cheers.

Thanks for the info, Alan. I'm going to try this on my A.odoratus, which
toppled over suddenly (probably shock from being reclassied). Although you
say healthy petiole, I might as well try it, it would just be heading for
the trash otherwise.

Hi All,
Here we go again, has anyone received their snail mail copy of the
newsletter? It went out Tue Aug 14 by First class mail. The International
did not get picked up until Thur, but I would love to hear when they arrive.
Aroideana will be mailed out on Aug 29 for all the 2001 members.
For Members there is also a treat of a beautiful color copy of the current
newsletter(see Scott's previous post)on the web-site.
