Re: [aroid-l] A. titanum bloom in Indonesia
From: piaba <piabinha at yahoo.com> on 2004.03.16 at 13:15:39(11279)|
just a small point... i think they may have gotten the
location wrong. cibodas is a separate BG from the one
in bogor, i believe cibodas is higher up in the
mountain (and further east) and grows mostly cooler
growing plants. i'd think the titanum are grown in
the bogor garden. does anyone know?
