Title: Message
Since you are in South Florida Your best chance to locate one would be the International Aroid Society's Show and Sales at Fairchild tropical gardens on the weekend of Sept 20 & 21. There is usually a good selection of corms as well as potted specimens of many species of Amorphophallus. You will probably enjoy the rest of the plants at the sales as well.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Best sources for an amorphophallus paeonifolius?


I've been searching for places to get a hold of an amorphophallus paeonifolius. I am in South Florida, so I'm pretty sure my zone will be fine for it. So far the places I've found are mostly overseas, charging a high price for a particularly small tuber. Aside from that, I'm also trying to avoid getting anything from overseas so I don't need to even think about customs. The ones I have found that are "local" are all sold out; it just makes me wonder how every place I turn doesn't have any for sale.

So the real question is: Are there any good soures to purchase a paeonifolius in the US at this time? Or am I going to have to keep my eye around and hope one crops up? I'm hoping there is as this is proving to be a slightly elusive plant (at least for me).

Thank you.
