Hello fellow Amorph lovers of the

I've been working with a fellow in Thailand to try
and get a few species of Amorphophallus imported and have been successful in
locating a few species that you may be interested in which I have listed
below. While some of these are at my house now, most will be shipped
in about 2-3 weeks time. Wilbert has helped with the ID on a few of these
(thanks Wilbert) and in particular I think the Am. scaber should be commented
on. This has been collected in N. E. Thailand and apparently represents a
new distribution pattern for this species which is quite exciting! The
Pseudodracontium was also collected in N.E. Thailand and is quite common there
I'm told so I do not know if it is an import for the food market (these are
reportedly eaten as vegetables in that part of the country) or is a naturally
occuring species. Please e-mail me directly (plantguy@zoominternet.net)
if you are interested in any of these and I can send along pictures for your
perusal. All of the tubers are blooming size and have already bloomed this
spring to verify the ID of the species.

Am. corrugatus
