  Dracontium iquitense
From: tindomul1of9 at yahoo.com (Tindomul Er-Murazor) on 2007.08.28 at 08:05:33(16174)
Hello fellow Aroiders,
I thought I would share:
Here are some photos I took 1 year ago of the new species described as Dracontium iquitense in
Morgan, E. C., J. A. Speriling 2007. New species of Dracontium
(Araceae) from Iquitos, Peru. Aroideana 30:53-55.

Nice pictures! That looks like a really neat species, and I hope that it can
become widely established in cultivation.

I was particularly interested in the close up of the tuber, which depicted
the offsets quite well. I have read about how Dracontium produces off sets
at the margin of the petiole base. My Dracontium does no such thing. Is
there a way that I can stimulate them to produce offsets?

Happy days,
Christopher

Hello everyone,

In The Genera of Araceae published in 1997, the species count for
Dracontium was 23. Does this make it 24?
