  Amorph spadix times 2 ???
From: mburack at mindspring.com> on 2002.04.10 at 08:16:33(8512)
I might have seen someone mention this before but I cant remember for sure....

This was strange though.....

I currently have Amorphophallus koratensis in bloom (as it does every year like clockwork).

This year it made the normal inflorescence... but also at the base of the inflorescence (not coming out of the tuber-actually at the base of the "normal" inflor) there is a miniature (yet complete) additional spadix(although horizontal....as opposed to the normal vertical spadix).

I took many photos yesterday evening to document this if there was a "desire" for others to see it.

Has this ever happened to anyone else?

I for one, would like to see the picture!
Thanks

We had an Amorphophallus bulbifer last year that produced two complete
spathes, very pretty, a double-ruffled effect, not sure what it'll do this
year. I've also seen double spadices on Anthurium sect. Pachyneurium
before, almost Y-shaped...

As soon as I get the film developed, I will post the picture up so that all may see.

There's always men that are not happy with just one spadix.............
