  Amorphophallus availability?
From: "JaredR McKinley" <jaredr.mckinley at gmail.com> on 2008.11.19 at 06:57:25(18736)
Hey all. I am interested in growing some Amorphophallus again. I have one very large greenhouse and two small ones. Some years ago I grew a bunch of species and had a pretty good experience with them. They seemed easy enough.

It would be a dream to get some. A. titanum seeds. Have they become easier to get in 8 years??

Anyway, if anyone here is selling tubers or seed, or knows where I can get some, let me know.

((Expecto Patronum))

I would say that A. titanum is one of the more common species now compared to 8 years ago. There are seed for sale on ebay for a very low price nearly constantly. I bought 24 seed last year and sent them to a friend in South America and as I recall I spent $5 per seed. It seems the tubers that people are growing from those seed are nearly as plentiful and being sold on ebay. I think this will be one of the easier species to track down for you in all honesty and it is likely some growers here will be willing to part with some of their seedlings.

I'd love to have one small GH....I envy you :o)

Hi Jared,

Though not quite yet to the extent of appearing in a Home Depot garden
center nearest you... A. titanum has been faring quite well in

It's a long way from Arizona, but the UC Botanical garden in Berkeley, CA is selling the 'offspring' of

"Titania" and "Trudy" that bloomed there over the past few years.

Titanum seedlings are available at a very reasonable price from EFG
Orchids in Deland, Florida. They also list them on ebay rather
frequent. You can find their contact information on their wesite
www.efgorchids.com. They have a large number of them we originally
brought in from Troy Davis in Indonesia several years ago.
