Good luck!

indehiscent fruit with a single locule and a single seed, with the seed

Peter,
The A. henryii seed arrived savely early this week. Thanks again for
sharing this with everyone. Do you know of any sources of pictures of the
flower?

Dear henryi freaks,

The caption of the photo in Aroideana 19 of A. henryi, also says that
the inside of the spathe is maroon, which is the more striking part
compared to the spathe outside, which is green indeed.

Beware that seeds of henryi may take more than a year to germinate, or
it may be shorter, so don't despair when it takes a while.

Cheers,
Wilbert

I was just reviewing some of my old saved mail and found a couple of the
posts from the distribution of the Amorphophallus henryi seeds in December
of 1997.

Just to confirm that patience IS a virtue, all 5 of my seeds have finally
germinated (4/99). I had placed them in a zip-lock plastic bag with coarse
peatmoss - just barely moist.

Any hints for how best to care for the new babies - that is, anything special?

Don
