Does this mean konjac is not a "rare plant" anymore?

Speaking of sources for Araceae, has anyone bought any of their

We don't think so, but there are still people out there coming to our site
or writing directly because it is still rare to them. What is their
definition of rare, possibly they learned something new today! Who am I to
make that determination? I listen to our customer base and prospects; isn't
the customer always right? Susan, I know you'll get my dry humor, anyone
else?

Perhaps Amorph. konjac is common among Amorphs, but I still don't consider it a commonly available plant. Not like a Philo. scandens or something like that. We don't have konjacs for sale at our Home Depot! It isn't fair that you guys in Florida get better plants than we do. Leslie RuleColumbia, MO

Dry humour? Are the tyoobahs really THE konjac & can one eat them?

I've been meaning to e-mail you and see how you're doing. Our Home Depot has cut down on the number of plants it keeps (and kills). Talked to a salesperson one day in there, they cut down the plant section to at least half or more than what it was. I hardly ever look at their plants anymore. Once I settled into a few species that I can't live without, other plants just don't excite me. Leslie RuleColumbia, MO

Dear Ron,
A. konjac and A. paeonefolius (both species are represented in cultivation by several vars.) are MAJOR food crops in Asia, they are cooked/used much like taro root/taro/ potatoes, and processed for starch from which nooles are madebut--- the 'tyoobahs' /'chubas' we speak of were actually the tubers/corms/rhyzomes of Xanthosoma cf. saggitifolium/violacium, sold as a vegge here in S. Florida groceries, and cooked in place of 'Irish' potatoes w/ curried chicken. I did it as part of a presentation on the history of edible aroids for Elizabeth`s Begonia Soc. here in W.P.B., Florida.
