Dear CJ,

Thanks for sharing your good fortune and photos with all of us on aroid-L.
Nice job of growing this sometimes difficult species, and having the good
fortune that the pollinators (probably blow-flies) are around your parts!
I used to have this plant here in S. Florida, it did survive, but barely.
I came out of dormancy and grew leaves in Winter/Spring here in the hot
South, and went dormant around May-June when it became too hot. It never
bloomed for me.
I hope that others who live in an appropiate zone/area write to you and that
you can trade off some of the seeds, it is a plant worthy of being kept in

The Best,
