  Jasarum Growers?
From: Don Burns <burns at mobot.org> on 1998.01.31 at 21:47:54(1893)
Is anyone on the list growing Jasarum steyermarkii? I am looking for a
source for the plant.

Dear Don,
Long time no hear!
I asked around for this in the pre-e-mail days, and no one had it. I
believe that Bogner MIGHT have had it back around the time it was being
discribed, but it probably would be difficult to keep alive, as it grows in
swift moving water, highly acidic.
Good luck,

Julius: It is a bitch to grow because of the special area it grows
(submerged in blackwater streams flowing off white-sand areas). We
tried it once. Josef did have it in cultivation but I don't know if he
still has it. If he can't grow it I would guess you might as well not
try! My student Jane Whitehill needs some material for her studies so
if you succeed in finding it let me know.

Dear Tom,
These are my thoughts exactly concerning this very unique plant. Don Burns
was the one asking if it was available, and what you have now said is in
effect what I had posted.
I am having a few probs with my "new" e-mail (new version of my old MSN )
system, so you would have received a message which I will now ask you to
pass on to Guang Hua please.
Any word on the new issue of Aroideana as yet?

Please allow me to add my request for fruit/seed mateial of Jasarum
steyermarkii for my study of seed lipids. I need only 5 - 6 fruits/seeds.
