  Giant Amorphs - Wilbert

No no Wilbert...

You should know, I would rather have my skin flailed off with a hot branding
iron before getting into Philos which I generally loathe.

Now Anthuriums on the other hand...hmmmmmmmm (SMILE!)

What can I say... I cant protect the d**n things..... Everything is looking
great... 4pm comes.. they sky turns black... out of nowhere it is nothing but
lightning and rain, and the ever so pleaseant 55 mile an hour wind.... I have
tried stakes....big clay pots... you name it.. these things just arent built
to handle any wind..... The leaf is smashed into bits.. and the orange or
grapefruit sized tuber I started out with at the start of the season, is now
the size of a pea!??!
Of course with the exception of my large paeons, which seem to be able to
withstand a house falling on them!

All Aroiders,

This may be a hair off the subject, but here goes. I finally have enough
planting space to greatly expand my aroid collection. I need to know of
SOURCES where I can purchase small aroid cuttings/plants, either suckers or
tissue culture. I am interested in Amorphophallus, Alocasias, Colocasias,
Monstera, Xanthosoma, Zantedeschia, and aroid variegated, etc. There has to
be companies that propagate aroids by tissue culture. I would appreciate any
info. Sorry to say I will not be able to make the IAS meeting at Fairchild
which will be a great source for aroids. Thanks, Bob K, plantbob@aol.com

Then why don't you dig in the pots and put the plants in a more
wind-protected area? hey, for phalloids you have to suffer, baby.

Like Wisconsin, for instance
