  [Aroid-l] amorph gigas/ goetzei
From: donbit121 at hotmail.com (Don Bittel) on 2007.09.07 at 02:43:38(16231)

Dear all,
A couple years ago I received an amorphophallus tuber from Dr. Croat
that was labeled gigas. It grew well last summer, but was still a small
plant when it went dormant. To my surprise it flowered and fruited this
year. But it surely is not gigas. The flower most resembles goetzei, and has
many bumps or warts inside the lower spathe. It set seed with no help, and
the fruits are a bright blue color. Has anyone else grown this or know the
correct species? I would like to include some of the fruits/seeds in the
aroid banquet auction. Thanks.
