  [Aroid-l] I need information on Amorphophallus Paeonifolius -any
From: Ty York <exoticplant07 at yahoo.com> on 2008.10.24 at 17:34:28(18674)
This is my first year of growing them and mine have not shown any signs of going dormant and we may get our first frost in a week. I was wondering if I should bring them indoors or let the frost get them.

Second question, I had someone tell me that there is 2 different paeonifolius plants. A small variety 3-4 feet and a large variety that gets 9 feet tall, does this sound right? I have searched to no end and found nothing about 2 different ones.

Third question: I bought 3 bulbs last year as a new variety of amorphophallus stated to be sp. madagascar. No pics of the plant were avalible or size etc. just sold as new discovery from madagascar and 3 bulbs cost me 100.00. The plants were funny looking very small plants even on the largest bulb 14oz only put up a foot tall plant. No blooms. Have I been taken? I cannot find the seller again and they would not answer emails after I bought them. Bought off ebay :(.

Thanks anyone for any help on this. Ty
