Peoples and friends,

below is the list of tuberous goodies we have this year to distribute to you
Amorphophiles. Those of you sho like climbing aroids and non-tuberous ground
dwelling species are not allowed to order............. This is for the happy
few with good taste in plants......... :-)

The variety is o.k. but the numbers are not too high this year. I had to
move the collection to my new job (Wageningen Botanical Gardens) and in
order to keep this whole operation to certain limits, I already gave away
quite some material to people who could pick them up themselves in Leiden
(that's the joy of living in or near to the Netherlands........).

Most material are offsets, some rather small because that goes with the
species. Cannot help that.

The usual instructions are at the bottom of this message. Newbies to this:
PLEASE read those instructions carefully.

All species can be found on their respective pages on the IAS website, so
you can see if you like them. Am. operculatus was just published in the most
recent Aroideana issue.

As usual I will try to please everybody with something but never expect to
get all that you order. I'll distribute material evenly over the orders. Of
course, if you are only interested in one or a few and they are few in
numbers, you may have to wait another year....... :-(

Forgive the accolade Lord P but to me this is examplary of all that is best
& lasting for those folks who love Aroids. With as always characteristic
self-effacing humour too. I don't grow them anymore but thank You, Kind
