Dear Craig,
Anthurium, Spathiphyllum, Caladium, and Calla, are among aroid genera which
horticulturally benefited greatly from a program of hybridization and breeding.
Now that you have several species of Amorphophallus and relatives blooming or
ready to, together, howbout saving pollen from one and putting it on others
receptive, to produce hybrids?
The benefits, at least, may turn out to be hybrid vigor and decreased
time. Many unexpected surprises turn up also.
There would probably be a ready market for such seed or seedlings as many of us
would be eager to grow up some of these..........
