Re: [Aroid-l] Dormancy issues with Amorph's
People cutting off inflorescences? People liking Amorphophallus-leaves
better than inflorescences? WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO??????? Haven't I
been writing my butt off about Amorphophallus ID's for years and thereby
always telling people to watch the inflorescences???? And now people start
cutting them off?????????????? Because they fear they;ll get no
leaves????????? Holy cr.. !!
