Re: Amorphophallus Chlorophyll missing?

Hi Neil,

nice and very interesting to see something like this, but sorry, the plant will die since it is chlorophyll deficient.

No chlorophyll, no photothysesis, no sugar -> the seedling will starve after it has used the carbohydrates from the seed.

This was noticed by an austrian fellow aroider in 2005 in a batch of seeds from www.sumatraflora.com (offline since 2005) run by Troy Davis that time.

Here some links to pictures of the seedling:


some more if you use the red arrow...


Nevertheless: Happy growing (of your other plants),

Ive got a new batch of Amorph. Titanum seeds on the go, but one of them seems to be missing the green bit most plants figure out early in life.

Its had the same light levels as the others, grown in the same place, not the biggest and not the smallest, nor the first or last in its batch to open a leaf.

Its just not going green (like the one behind it which hasnt opened its first leaf properly yet.)

Anyone got any clues, will it die, or will it keep growing in this mutated colour?
