  Fw: Anchomanes gigantea

>Dear Wilbert,
Thanks for all the information on this interesting and often misinterprited
genus!! Question---is A giganteus in cultivation ANYWHERE?? There are
two species/varieties common in cultivation here, the only differences seem
to be the difference in color around the spines on the petioles/peduncles
(one has paler spots around each spine ) AND the difference in the
rhizomes, one grows horizoltally along the ground, the other almost
vertically, the spathes may be different colors, I am not sure.
Bjorn got his plants from the old collection at the Botanical Garden at
Frankfurt University. A little later on today I will forward to you a couple
of his letters with info. on his plant, it MAY be interesting or informative
to you. I have forwarded your wonderful info., and hopefully it will be
posted on Aroid-l, thanks so much again!!
