	FYI...I have just returned from an expedition to South Africa and we saw
quite a bit of Zantedeschia aethiopica growing in the wild.  I had expected
to find it growing in bogs, but instead found it in high elevation rock
cracks, many of which were quite dry.  Occasionally we found it in areas of
moist soil, but nothing that would nearly approach boggy conditions.
