Greetings Vincent,

I have not purchased from Telos lately,

but they have reliable offerings, and I have not had

any trouble with ordering plant material from them before.

You also correct they have a lot of different items available

that you may not see elsewhere.

She is wonderful. I have both purchased Amaryllids from her and sold her
some of my seed from other rare Amaryllids. You should be pleased with
what you get.

Yes. I purchased a bunch of arums from them and will purchase a bunch more next year.

This is my first foray into aroid collecting in 16 years and I wanted to try aroids, which may be hardy in my area. My purchase arrived in September with all of the tubers well packed within a plastic baggie and vermiculite. Arum pictum had already sprouted and has now produced four or five leaves. Arum creticum is just now sprouting, although we were just hit with our first "hard freeze" of the season and it will take a few days to see the results, if any.

Hope this is helpful.

Hi,
I've had an order from them - but it was because I went in on an order with somebody else. Apparently the shipping is a little high, but their selection is excellent. The prices could be better, but then again, most of their stuff is very difficult to find.

Does anyone have other sources for arums, arisaemas, biarums, and other aroids hardy in zone 8a and below?

I am attempting to grow aroids outside in containers here in North Texas.

The morning after this season's first hard freeze (low of 20 degrees F), I noticed that the leaves on my arum italicum were flacid showing the resultsof the cold weather, but by afternoon, in balmy 40 degree F. weather, they had recovered. The next night I covered them with a grocery bag and they then showed no effect from the cold night.
