  Re: hybrids, ramblings, spare pollen

Marketable....maybe...... doable.......doubtful......
I have attempted hybridization of amorphophallus 9 times at this point...... It has never worked..... As I have said before..... probably the only shot of ANY kind of hybrid.... are "like" amorphs (ex. koratensis x opertus, paeoniifolius x prainii, etc.....)

I have attempted those "long stretch" crosses (konjac x paeoniifolius, etc.... and they just dont seem to work). Everyone must understand that IF these plants hybridized easily.... you would see a slew of them from aroid aficianados..... notice how you dont see them very often....... thats because you can "throw a little extra pollen on something"..... but what you will most likely get will be an "infloresence with some pollen on it"....nothing more...
