  [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus koratensis petiole consistency
From: Ken Mosher ken at spatulacity.com> on 2005.10.09 at 12:08:48(13413)
Anyone who has grown many Am. koratensis has seen the large variability
between petioles - some light, some dark, some bumpy, some nearly
smooth, some spotted and some nearly solid-colored.

My question is, how consistent is any one tuber from year to year in
producing the same color petiole?

I naturally would have assumed that it would be consistent, except I
noticed that when a tuber produced a second leaf (not sure if they were
from the same tuber or from offsets, or both) that the new petiole was
not always of the same coloration.

Has anyone tracked this?

If you have, I ask the same question about Am. asterostigmatus and the
consistency of the percentage of coverage of the spots.
