Hi Jani,

I got quite a few of these last year from the
Himalayas and they are incredibly warty little tubers with a mature, flowering
size tuber being perhaps 5 cm in diameter. The flower is very tiny at
maybe 1 cm in length and mine produce a single heart-shaped light green leaf
with an occassional new leaf being produced throughout the summer growing
season. I potted mine in my typical Amorph mix and they have been growing
well through the summer. Assuming this link works you can see a pic of my
tuber and influorescence at the following Photobucket site: http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b124/TreasuredBotanicals/Ariopsis/?action="">

I should have a few of these for trade at the end
of the season if anyone is interested.

Good growing,

Dear Dan,

I also thank you for the reply.
Now I see, that this specimen would be only cultivated by
collectors, becouse it is not a very attractive plant from the wiewpoint from
our customers.
