  amorphophallus kiusianus
From: "Temmerman" <temmerm at skynet.be> on 2004.07.19 at 10:41:56(11770)

Does anybody have experience with this Amorphophallus? I have a couple of
seeds from Germany (www.rareplants.de), but I can't find too much about
them. Somewhere, I read they don't take temps above 80 F without losing the
leaf. Could that possibly be true? I hope you can all tell me it is an
easy species to grow;-)
Thanks already!

I have grown and seeded this Amorph and the seeds germinate easily but take
a while to do so. I had almost 100 percent success with the seed. It is 90+
here and I have them in the ground and in pots and it has not dropped any
leaves. Almost all of mine have multiple stems. I have also found it to be
hardy in Zone 7.

Thanks for your reply. Are you in zone 7 then?
I was wondering whether the kiusianus would also be able to survive in a
zone 9b or even 10?
Otherwise, I don't have to bother giving one to a friend in Florida.
Thanks and have a good one.

Hi Michael,
I know someone who is growing kiusianus successfully in Ft. Lauderdale, FL
