  propagation
From: Tony Avent <tony at plantdel.com> on 1998.01.12 at 08:10:44(1821)
Aroiders:

Two propagation questions:

1- Has anyone had any experience slicing tubers of dracunculus vulgaris
for propagation purposes?

2- I have been entrusted with a stunning Symplocarpus foetidus with a
wide cream margin that was found by my friend Darrell Probst. Sorry, I
didn't get pictures taken last season, but promise to do so this year.

As there is only one division, we would obviously like to propagate
it. We are considering crown cutting, as is used in hostas. Does anyone
have any experience with vegetative propagation of skunk cabbage?

I wouldn't be suprised if Fred Case has experience with this. He's not on the
internet unfortunately (as far as I know).

Tony,
I do hope that you will report back to us the results of sicing tubers
of dracunculus vulgaris and crown cutting the stunning Symplocarpus
foetidus.

MJ:

We have sliced and diced the dracunculus and crown cut some green
symplocarpus...I will know in spring how they did, and will try to report
back. We did slice tubers of Amorphophallus bulbifer last year and they did
great (5 pieces per bulb).

I cringed at the very thought. I have a lot to learn.
