  RE: Amorphophallus leaf size (was growing season)

Dear Julius, Mark and others,

The criteria used to define the largest leaf is that all of the
Amorphophallus heigth can be credited to its leaf (including petiole).
Palms can be very tall (even taller than any Amorphophallus) but it has a
lot of leaves and most part of the heigth is because of the stem. In
Amorphophallus, the leaf itself behaves like it was a whole tree. Aroids
are weird plants...
