If anyone is interested...

There will be about a dozen Anaphyllum wightii for sale at Fairchild's
Spring Sale Saturday morning 4/29/2000. They are a very interesting aroid.

Anaphyllum wightii           Araceae    from India
SOURCE: Dr. Jack Fisher collected India, Kerala State. Shaded forest floor.
The striking spiraled spathe brown to charcoal is held high above the deeply
lobed sparse foliage.
BLOOM PERIOD: almost everblooming
HORTICULTURE:  Jack said they were "Dormant and leafless in dry season."
This isn't the case when they are irrigated. Our nursery was growing them in
regular potting soil. There is a tuber or rhizome at the base. They have
often set some seed, but have shown no inclination to germinate when not
properly planted. I have pressed the seed into the surface of the soil, much
like a palm seed. Germination is usually with in six weeks.
