  Storage of Amorphophallus seeds
From: "StroWi at t-online.de" <StroWi at t-online.de> on 2010.11.02 at 00:13:28(21619)
Aroiders, esp. Amorphophiles,

a fellow Amorphophile is in Cameroon and asks how to store
Amorphophallus zenkerii (probably zenkerii) seeds till he comes back.
He knows that the viability of Amorphophallus seeds is limited, but he
wants to keep them viable as long as possible.
Can he store them cool in a fridge or will this damage the seeds? Or are
there better ways to store them?
How long do they keep viability anyway?

Looking forward to your advice...

Happy storing,

Cleaned and stored in a cool refrigerator they should stay good for at
least 3 months after that I am not sure how quickly they lose viability.
