Subject: [aroid-l] Amorphs & friends distribution: DO NOT REPLY VIA AROID-L
> Peoples and friends,
> below is the list of tuberous goodies we have this year to distribute to
> Amorphophiles. Those of you sho like climbing aroids and non-tuberous
> dwelling species are not allowed to order............. This is for the
> few with good taste in plants......... :-)
> The variety is o.k. but the numbers are not too high this year. I had to
> move the collection to my new job (Wageningen Botanical Gardens) and in
> order to keep this whole operation to certain limits, I already gave away
> quite some material to people who could pick them up themselves in Leiden
> (that's the joy of living in or near to the Netherlands........).
> Most material are offsets, some rather small because that goes with the
> species. Cannot help that.
> The usual instructions are at the bottom of this message. Newbies to this:
> PLEASE read those instructions carefully.
> All species can be found on their respective pages on the IAS website, so
> you can see if you like them. Am. operculatus was just published in the
> recent Aroideana issue.
> As usual I will try to please everybody with something but never expect to
> get all that you order. I'll distribute material evenly over the orders.
> course, if you are only interested in one or a few and they are few in
> numbers, you may have to wait another year....... :-(

> A few policy remarks
> - the list contains plant names, often with clone numbers. If you
> want a particular clone of a species (because you already had another one
> from an earlier distribution and want to play with the naughty bits to get
> seed.....), please mention the clone number with the species name. If you
> want a clone, any clone, don't indicate a number.
> - the tubers will be sent with phytosanitary certificates unless the US
> orders are distributed from within the US.
> - the tubers will be sent with the clone numbers, whether you requested a
> particular clone or not. PLEASE, try to keep the clone number with your
> plant on a label. There may come a time, when all of our collection
> over and I may have to ask your help to build it up again......(your WORST
> nightmare, I know!).
> - my paying policy hasn't changed, so here it is again. I am not asking
> particular amounts of money for species, so rarity etc. doesn't matter.
> I ask you to pay, is what you yourself think the ordered plants are worth
> for you, and please, DO include your own financial state-of-affairs in
> considerations. If you don't have much to spend, then don't. I'm happy
> you get these freaky plants. If you have plants to swap in return, that's
> fine, I'll be waiting for the offer.......
> - do NOT pay before you get your plants. Then decide if everything is o.k.
> Subtract from the estimated amount the plants that were DOA (and please,
> mention this to me).
> - paying: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, NO cheques or anything like it (incl.
> money orders or what not). I only accept cash in an envelope. I know, this
> is not the most secure way, but the hassle I have with cashing cheques is
> beyond your imagination. It also costs a damn lot of money to do it. As if
> banks didn't have enough of that stuff. So, don't even consider to do it
> ask me,
> the answer is "no"!, ONLY cash. Thus far it has worked perfectly this way.
> My postal address:
> Wilbert Hetterscheid
> Chrysantenstraat 28
> 1214 BM Hilversum
> - direct all orders and related electronic correspondence to:
> - PLEASE include your postal address in your ordering email. This has
> been forgotten in the past and that is a horror for the admin people. No
> address, no plants.
> - the CLOSING CEREMONY for this distribution is set on the 15th OF
> ANY order coming in later, will only be rewarded with
> left-overs, if there are any at all. (Hell, even I don't know what
> constitutes a "left-over" in Amorphophallus............).
> - I assume that the shipping will start some two or three weeks after the
> closing date. Please indicate if your climate is a danger to the plants in
> that period. I don't think we can avoid sending them but maybe you have an
> alternative address. If not, don't order. We cannot keep the plants here
> too long because they will wake up and deteriorate.
> - print out or keep this entire message because I am not going to repeat
> things in individual messages.
> - when you order by using the reply key, please "cut the crap", meaning,
> out all my statements above and stick to the list, your postal adress and
> what you have to say yourself. Thanks.
