  Arisaema questions II
From: Eduardo Gomes Goncalves <eggon at guarany.cpd.unb.br> on 1997.04.04 at 12:32:12(576)
Dear Aroidelers,

Firstly, thanks to Ray, Shing, MJ Hatfield and Don for the prompt
reply. My ignorance about the Arisaemas was sligthly lowered, but I still
have a long way ahead. I still don't know how to join Arisaema-l. I have
to confess that I got a post explaining that, but it was some time ago,
when I just believed that I wouldn't see any Arisaema in the next future.
Now I know that there are some lovely tropical or subtropical species (I'm
in love specially with A. cordatum), and I'm even proned to try some
Temperate species (I think my refrigerator will be a part of my greenhouse
soon...). I'm still waiting for some indication about seed sources but
I'll try it directly in the Arisaema-l (as soon as I can join...).

Best wishes,

Here is the standard information on AEG:

The Arisaema Enthusiasts Group is worldwide sharing information, seed,
corms, etc. The price for joining is to send three things:

1. A list of your collection of A. species with numbers of plants sorted
(mature), (flowered), (set seed), (immature), (seedlings), (died) with
initials for sources if you wish.

2. Your hardiness zone.

3. Your snail-mail address. Seed don't travel the internet too well.

We send you the membership list, the most comprehensive species list in
world, a great bibliography, a copy of your collection inventory, and a
called 'Who's Got What' so you can see who's growing the one you crave.
group also publishes world wide source lists for seed and corms and
a Web Page on Arisaema .

We now support a discussion list, Arisaema-L, for members. The list is
principally for information on Arisaema, but includes other hardy aroids
such as Arum, etc. We recommend Aroid-L for discussions on tropical
and tender aroids.

If you're interested, drop me a line, or an E-mail, with the information.

I can't help with seed for the tropicals. But, you could FAX Madan Tamang
in India. He may be able to get some for you. Here's his standard list,
but he will try to get species from other parts of India and Burma.

It seems that each person receives a slightly different Madan Tamang
Catalog. Here's a copy of the version in the Arisaema-L archives (that we
can't see yet).

Note: this is a very old post, so no reply function is available.
