  seeds/weeds?
From: Eugene Hoh hohe at symphony.net.au> on 2003.08.01 at 01:38:05(10464)
Dear All,

just thought I'd add that one of my A. bulbifer is now in ripe fruit - I should have a few seeds and bulbils to spare. Would anyone (in Australia only) like any (for free or to swap)? If so, please email me (not aroid-L!) at hohe@symphony.net.au.

My clone has the (common?) large lichen-like blotches on blackish petioles/peduncle, and is similar to the one pictured at the top of the page :

A caution, though: I would really think twice about planting it near bushland (esp. in warm areas with wet summers) as those bulbils/berries look like they could start an invasion in the right conditions... Does anyone know if A. bulbifer has actually become an environmental weed problem anywhere?

Eugene
