[Aroid-l] amorph gigas/ goetzei
From: donbit121 at hotmail.com (Don Bittel) on 2007.09.09 at 02:07:39(16245)|
thanks for your ID of the amorph henryi. I've grown that one before but
it was years ago that it flowered. I guess I was hoping this was goetzei,
since it wasn't the gigas that I thought I had. I'll have to razz Tom if
he's at the show about him sending me the wrong form of gigas!
and I didn't keep the scarab beetle.
