Hey, Taylor!

The best thing to do is check out the IAS website: http://www.aroid.org/

Especially the Amorphophallus section: http://www.aroid.org/genera/generapage.php?genus=amorphophallus

This has tons of pictures on the species that you areinterested in.

Scads of information (including photos and detailed descriptions)is available in Volume 19 of the journal Aroidiana, which is available here: http://www.aroid.org/genera/amorphophallus/journal.php

Dr. Wilbert Hetterscheid is reportedlyworking on a manuscript that will tell us everything known about Amorphophallusup to the date of publication. He also gave us this: http://www.hort.net/lists//aroid-l/sep07/msg00061.html

A while back someone posted to the list an Amorphophallussoil/dormancy list that would be of benefit to you, which I seem to havemisplaced. If someone else out there could repost it to me I would appreciateit!

Good luck, Taylor. I hope you have lots of fun growingthese amazing plants. My son started with orchids when he was 12. He is 16 nowand still enjoys them very much. One thing he does that may or may not be anoption for you, is that he volunteers at our local university growing andpropagating their plants. He learns a lot and they often give him plants forhis efforts.

Sure thing Christopher and Taylor! That was me that posted that list. Maybe come spring, Christopher can get me an internship at EcoAnalysts. I live in Roseville Near Sacramento and plan to move to Sacramento shortly before spring.
