Dear Friend,

Are you certain that you have a 'true' Anchomanes giganteus? I recall that
several years ago some seed that were SAID to be of A. giganteus were
distributed, but there were many doubts as to their authenticity, and many
said that they were just seeds of A. difformis. Do you know the source of
your plant??? As far as I am aware, true A. giganteus is not in
cultivation at this time, I stand to be corrected on this statement!!
When it blooms, it should be not too difficult to tell if it is A.
difformis, A. giganteus or another species. A. difformis grows well in a
jungle-mix of soil w/ a little sand added.

Good Growing!

Hi Julius,
I can't say if it's a real giganteus or a difformis. I would be glad if
it grows and be healthy regardless what it is exactly. ;-)
It's my first Anchomanes. I got it through rareplants.de
I read that a giganteus would grow about 3 m ?! Better if it's a
difformis, I think.
What does a good jungle mix-consist off?

My Anchomanes "spec." is still at the same point then my last post over
a month ago.
