  Kalabenono Amoorphophallus petiole variations
From: aroidgrower at gmail.com (John Ludwig) on 2007.12.17 at 23:43:18(16835)
I have a few different petiole variations so far.








Does anybody else have similar variations?

Which species are you finding variations in? Some species are extremely
variable and some not so much. And then there's the occasional sport
that looks very, very different. I also have to admit that I don't know
what "Kalabenono" is. Is that a location?

Kalabenono is a place in the north of Madagascar. The species is probably
undescribed and I am preparing to have it published.

Sorry Ken and all others on aroid-l for my forgetting to mention that I was
referring the the Unnamed species from Madagascar that have been recently
sold on eBay by Out of Africa.
Two have recently emerged from dormancy and more are on the way.

There was just in my opinion a great amount of variation between the two
that have fully emerged from dormancy that I was wondering if others have
noticed such variation.

Hi John,

Guess it is just me or maybe experience, but the petioles you show are not all that different for a species in my opinion. Other common species like bulbifer display far more variation than that as do others like konjac, mulerii, etc, etc.

Happy Holidays all,
