  amorphophallus campanulatus and arum campanulatum
From: Palaniappa at aol.com on 1997.07.24 at 05:47:46(988)
Dear list members,

I am not a botanist. I would very much appreciate if you can tell me or guide
me to any text or graphic descriptions (preferred) of amorphophallus
campanulatus and arum campanulatum on the internet. Are the two different? I
would like to know, for instance,

1. if they grow in Indus Valley or Punjab region of Pakistan/India or
northeast Afghanistan

Now should I really start explaining "Amorphophallus"? I've been in
trouble before in this eminent group for using language that wasn't
up to standards. O.k. here goes:

"A morpho phallus": shapeless penis, refers to the shape of the spadix
of the first ever species assigned to this genus, which happens to be
the very Am. paeoniifolius we're discussing.

"Arum": this had something to do with Mozes' brother Aaron, isn't it?
I guess some other aroidellers know more. Bud in people!

Cheers,
Wilbert

This is what I had suspected. You have no idea how far you have contributed
to the history of religion.

I need to know if just before the flower and leaves open out, there will be
three extremities at the top of the plant, one each for the leaves, and one
for the flower.

Stearn says it's from the Greek "aron" for the poisonous (?) plants related
to Arisaema.
