  Re: The Typhonodorum lindleyanum seeds

Hello Brian,

Happy New Year! Have not heard from you in a while---how is the cold
treating you and the plants???
A tip w/ those Typhonodorum seeds, I floated them in plain pond/tap water
for a LONG time till most of the seed body was absorbed, as I found that
when I planted a seed in dirt with a lot of the 'body', before it was
absorbed by the developing plantlet, it tended to begin to rot then the
plantlet would die.

I am still looking for the following species of Anubias for my aquarium, saw
them in a Jap. book on aquarium plants, all three have arrow-shaped leaves--
A. gracilis, A. pynaertii, and A. gigantea. Let me know if you run into
any of these, or any with a sagittate leaf blade.

Talk to you soon,
