  Tacca questions (off topic??)
From: "Randall M. Story" story at caltech.edu> on 2002.05.24 at 19:27:27(8874)

I'm looking for information about Tacca plantaginea (Schizocapsa
plantaginea?). I get the impression that Tacca used to be considered an
Aroid, but not anymore (please correct me if I am wrong). Anyway, I picked
up a small seedling of this plant (~3 inch diameter) at last weekend's
Huntington Botanical Garden (near Los Angeles) plant sale. I have been able
to find little information about this species and I am curious: How do I
grow it? (warm and humid? light level?). Does it look like other Taccas
(i.e. chantrieri). How long will it take my little plant to reach blooming
