i have something weird happening to A. klausei tuber that his lordiness
pee-pee sent me last year. it sat all this time without doing anything and
suddenly a small white cone sprouted, giving me the impression it was coming
out of slumber. but then suddenly it turned brown and now it seems that the
tuber will not be viable anymore. why are these damn monsters so finicky?
i've had different tubers in the past never sprout again after growing for a
season or two (bulbifer, paeoniifolius).

Sounds like rot... Unfortunately I have seen it a couple of hundred times...especially with a beautiful parvulus this year.

Could it possibly be heat or sun? I've had several plants that started to
fail, even being in a shade house. I had to move them to the super-shade
house :)

Susan, Which are the plants in trouble? For many growers some are inevitably lost. Perhaps it isn't just you. Take heart but suffer the loss$$$$ A. symonianus for some is considered a pig because it grows like A. bilbifreum while A.hewletii is a disaster for most while some grow it successfully. Sadly everyone cannot grow all species. Oh if it were only so. Joe

This is interesting my first experience with Thyphonium started in March 2001
and they were the last Aroid to come in late July. All the other Aroid
plants were 6-10 weeks earlier Ray Maynard.

Ah, Geoffrey, you are now officially on my spite list (Some People I Truly
Envy)
I've tried to grow hewittii many, many times, to no avail... the longest I
can keep it going is a month. I can't believe you are growing it
indoors,on a windowsill!!

Susan,
My plants came from the Malesiana Tropicals nursery in Kuching (
www.malesiana.tropicals.com) where they are tissue cultured along with
various other amorphs and Alocasias. They cost the princely sum of 8 US
dollars! They were very healthy and have never looked back, growing like
weeds, first in a heated and artificially lit tank then in my bedroom
windowsill. Quite what I am going to do when they get bigger (they can reach
huge proportions!) I am not sure, probably grow out on my balcony in summer
and keep indoors dormant in winter. Do try it again, it has the most
beautifully marked stem and attractive leaflets. I also got A. eburneus from
them and that too is growing like a weed. Maybe the tissue culturing makes a
diffference?

OK, happened to my A-103, came with a nice point. this spring (A.
albispathum or albus?). I hollowed out the tip, put in cinnamon powder, and
rested it exposed on dry, rain-sheltered soil in a partially sunny
coldframe. Now it has 3 1 foot high and 1 foot wide leaves. Can't say as
much for half of Arisaemas I got from the same source through a friend this
year.

Chen-Yi's A-103 = A. albus. That is a strong species by the way, so I am not
surprised it survived surgery.

Willy, I am so pleased with the healthy vigorous phallids I have just had
released from quarantine.
Very impressed with the red colour on the petiole of Amorphophallus
