  A. konjac's blooming
From: "Plantsman" plantsman at prodigy.net> on 2002.05.09 at 20:36:35(8743)
I just wanted to make a few comments after visiting a friend's
aroid and carnivorous plant gardens today. He'd called me yesterday
to tell me that his A. konjac's were open and I'd better get there
quick if I wanted to take pictures. I'd visited his gardens last
summer and his A. konjac's were the largest I've seen yet. One
massive bulb has probably divided itself and had three very large
leaves almost five feet tall and wide with stems almost as big as my
forearm. He's growing these in the ground here in Northeast
Tennessee, about three miles from the VA border (Zone 6a). This
plant has been reliably hardy with a mulch since it was set out
three years ago and has survived 8?F temps. He also manages to grow
a huge clump of Alocasia plumbeae (sp?) outdoors with a mulch and a
variety of Arisaemas.
