To all of you who responded to my request for information about botanical
gardens attached to universities, I send my warmest thanks. The
information you provided was excellent and the editorial comments were
even more helpful. We have enough information to proceed with our task
and a lot will be done in the next 3 weeks. I also thank those of you who
asked others, not on the list, to respond and send information. First
class job ya'll did.

Dear All,

Some of you may remember me...I have been working on an economic and
ethnobotanical database for Araceae at Kew. I am sad to say that my
year at Kew has come to an end and in september I shall be returning
to Uni for my final year.

I just wanted to thank anyone who has helped me out over the year. I
have gained some really useful information via Aroid-L all of which
has been put into the database.

Although I have been a 'silent' member ! I have found the e-mails
interesting and have learnt a great deal about Aroids !

Thanks again for all the help

Kerry Taylor

Many thanks for all your good advice regarding Amorphophallus parvulus. I
have decided to leave it alone and let it do it's thing.... I have
enlarged the holes on the bottom and side so that the petioles will have a
bit more room to do whatever they are going to do... Now, all I will do is
fertilize, water and let it grow. It will be most interesting to see the
tuber/tubers in the fall when they go dormant. But, if there is a plant
that needs multiplying... it sure is A. parvulus. It is just too hard to
grow and as a result, the more tubers the better.....

BTW, to add insult to injury.... the poor little abused tuber has put out
a SIXTH petiole. This time... right out of the top of the pot....

I will keep you up-dated on this one....
