  New Topic - Spathanthema intermedium
From: "Michael Goetz" <michaelgoetz at gmx.net> on 2007.01.24 at 18:14:08(15127)
Hi everyone.
Does anyone of you cultivate Spathanthema intermedium (or an other
member of the Genus)and can share experiences with me ?
I was offered a small buld and am wondering wether to buy it or not.
Thanks & good growing,

Best regards from Munich,

I have grown one for a couple years now that I got from Arno Clement. He
sells on ebay and I've found him very reliable. I grow mine in a normal
soilless potting mix when it is in growth and leave it out of the soil when
resting (which has not been long - a couple of months perhaps). It has
flowered for me, and this prior to sending up leaves. When it flowered, I
had thought that it was sending up a leaf at first, but it turned out to be
a flower. I was afraid of rot, but it had grown a pot full of roots while
in flower. I've had no problem with rot at all. It stands about 3 feet
tall (the leaf and stock). It takes bright light. If you have other
questions, just ask. I grow quite a few different amorphophallus species
and I find this other aroid quite easy - as easy as konjac.

I have also grown one for a few years that I got from Arno Clement. I grow it in the same conditions as Konjac, out of soil dry and frost free (at times only just) in winter and plenty of food in summer. It has produced offsetts every year and flowered last year.
