I am a houseplant lover. Is there a page somewhere that lists
all the members of the AROID family? I suspect I may have some
aroids but just don't know it. I'd also like to know where to
purchase seeds for them.

I have some questions about Amorphophallus.

A. odoratus - In Aroideana, Vol 19, there are no cultivation notes.
Should the dormant tuber be stored dry as with A. yunnanensis?

A. opertus (and other species that should be stored in the soil) - I
continue to have trouble determining how dry or damp the soil should be
when these species are dormant. Dry or a minimal moisture? If they
should have minimal moisture, how do you determine "minimal"?

When making cuttings of Amorphophallus, the vegetative growth eventually
rots and a small tuber forms. How should that very small/tiny tuber be
stored? Do I wait for it to begin vegetative growth before potting it
and watering it?

Take a look at Aroideana Vol 19, 1996 Ray Maynard
