Peter, et al:
Need your assistance, once again. Attached are pictures of 1) what was sold
as A. titanium #'s 698 and 700 (5" wide, several new bulbs attached which
are coming out of dormancy) and 2) a smaller (just over 1") bulb #/s 704 and
706, which I believe is A. bulbifer.
My questions are: have these been identified correctly; and, can the
additional bulbs be removed for additional plants and how, are they cut off,
dried out and then planted?
Can you please confirm the id's; and, or correct me.

That is fine but I'd take them off of the sunny window sill; a pot in such a
place could easily reach 40C (104F) which would be fatal to newly emerged
shoots. We sow all our terrestrial aroid seeds in a 1:1 ground
sphagnum:Perlite or in coir:washed river sand (1:1). Germination takes 2 - 3
weeks at a minimum of 21C (70F) and a max. of 29C (84C).
If it's useful for folks, I could post some more detailed sowing and
transplantation tips for aroids.
