  [Aroid-l] light levels for Amorphophallus
From: Bryan Lampl blampl1 at earthlink.net> on 2005.02.24 at 07:12:54(12726)
Hello all. This year I am fortunate to have allocated more than double the
space for my Amorphophallus plants. After building the structure, I am now
questioning that using a 55% shadecloth may not be enough protection for the
foliage to avoid problems. It appears that the plants will be exposed to
more light then they were last year. Unfortunately, I didn't keep any
specific data on conditions. I will be using a light meter to determine the
light intensity within my greehouse and I am curious what is recommended as
a general rule for Amorphophallus? I suspect I may need to add additional
shading and was hoping to get some ideas about what would be a good range to
work with. Thanks for your imput.
