  In need of pictures

Hello All,

Some of you may know that I am in the process of
putting together an informational CD for new collectors of Amorphophallus.
This CD will explain in simple terms (to the neophyte) the hard to
understand language of Aroideana #19, information on the IAS and further
instruction on the proper cultivation and care of individual Amorph
species. I didn't know which part of the tuber was up, or what to do with
a rotted tuber when I purchased my first Amorphophallus..I explain all this
and much more. Very elementary stuff. Very boring to you
This CD is not a replacement for the information in
Aroideana #19 or the information on the IAS site. The
information will be like Amorphophallus 101....a great place to start and then
proceed to the more "scientific" information on the IAS. References to the
IAS site and Aroideana #19 will be throughout the CD.

Just don't want you to think that I, the new kid on
the block, am trying to trample anyone's toes.

I am in need of pictures of the following
Amorphophallus; petiole, leaf and inflorescence if possible. Any help will
be appreciated and proper credit will be given on the CD.

Thank you,

Hi, I would be interested if you compiled your CD.
Living in Vienna, Austria and I'm quite new to Aroids. I'm not a member
of the IAS 'cause I'm more interested in Amorphophalli and just partly
in Arisaema and Arum species. Other species not at all, except other
little well-smellers like dracunculus or helicodiceros ! I think the
majority of the mag wouldn't
be of to much interest to me. Probably I will reorder number 19 of

Hallo Peter,

Wie gehts! I am only interested in stinky plants also. I am looking for Helicodicerus musciverous....do you have some for sale?
Amorphophallus 101 means that it will explain the basics of growing Amorphophallus. This will be great for new collectors such as yourself.
I would be interested in permission to use the pictures you have sent me.
