  Flowering season for asian Amorphophalluses
From: ken at spatulacity.com on 2004.04.27 at 15:51:15(11440)
My imperfect understanding of the asian Amorphs would have them flowering at
the beginning of the rainy season. Is that correct? If so, is it sort of
generally correct or is it excellently correct (or am I a dunderhead)?

I'm specifically curious at what time of year the Javan species would most
likely be producing the inflorescence, and if multiple species would do so
within a narrowish window of time in relation to each other.

I thank the experts in advance!

In addition for Thai Amorphs, the flowering time are variable depends on
For example, A. obscurus is always flowering in late dry season or beginning
of rainy season while A. polyanthus which is naturally grow in the same area
flowering in the late of rainy season.

I'm not sure if this is a natural interbreed prevention, very interesting.

Me no expert. I gave away all my plants so I can't give you any help on the
Amorphophallus. I just don't remember much about the species.
Really was glad to see you two on your visit. Paul>
