I know that it is necessary for me to join the society, however the membership being "for the calendar year" dictates that I should wait until January to join. It'll be a long 3 months! :)
So, Steve - pleasure meeting you! I'm in Northern Mass, so a drive to Arkansas isn't in the works, but send more photos!
Folks, my name is Jude Platteborze. I'm 33, single, and am certifably a plant nut. I grew up with all kinds of animals, and plants. I spent many years studying fish behavior (Cichlids mostly.) But the plants gradually took over, and took first place in my heart as my foremost passion. I left college after a large protest occurred, and made me realize that I really wasn't in charge of my own life, and decided to "jump." I rented a small storefront in Gloucester, right before the recession hit. That happened, then I left my storefront, and rebuilt my old garage into a plant house, and am selling mostly on Ebay, and do a lot of trading as well.
Please feel free to read my story by searching Google for The Silent Seed.
My inventory of plants is some 22 pages long. I'm relatively new to aroids, but I grow mostly the rare and unusual, from all over the world. My aroids include some amorphs, a couple of philos, and monsteras. That's about it - I'm actively looking to grow my collection, literally! Other than the aroids, I enjoy caudiciforms, succulent bulbs, and anything weird!
Outside of the plants, I enjoy reading, movies, driving, fishing, and Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream! :)
Here are a couple of plants that I wouldn't mind finding!
Christia (Not an Amorph, obviously)
Okay.... specifics? Okay.... Amorph konjac varieties (Shattered Glass, Leo's Song, Nightstick, the miniature one, etc.)
Honestly - at this point, I'm starting my aroid collection, so anything is fair game!
If you go to ebay, and look me up: platteborze123, you will get a VERY general idea of part of my current inventory, and most of the plants are duplicates, so I can gladly trade 'em, as well!
Looking forward to getting to know you guys, and hopefully helping each other grow our collections!
Now, I've got the ball rolling so Jude it is your turn and then
everyone else jump in. I enjoy knowing all the folks that use Aroid
and so please tell us about your interests and if you are looking for
any particular plant. You never know what might "pop up".

Thank you ! Glad it's working as it should. I'm in
Massachusetts, and you?
I'll look you up shortly. If you like, you can look me up on
google - The Silent Seed, I have since left my storefront
(economy) and am now doing my growing/selling out of my garage that I
turned into a plant house!

Subject: Re: [Aroid-l] A Test, and Synandrospadix
see your post and it looks like you did it perfectly. Where
are you posting from?

Hi guys, this
is my first post, so hopefully it gets out there okay! Would some of
you kindly respond, so that I can get the feel of things, and make sure
I'm doing this right. And for the sake of avoiding this being
"un-related" I have come across some large, mature Synandrospadix
vermitoxicus. I have the opportunity to purchase them. If any of you
are interested, let me know, and I can determine how many to pick up.
Most of them have a flower now, so they are obviously mature. There is
no set price yet, as the plants are already pretty costly, so I wanted
to put this out there to see who might be interested. Ballpark range
will be $40 to $60 probably. If this is high, let me know.
and look forward to meeting you guys.
grow mostly amorphs, and a couple odds and ends, such as Anthuriums,
Synandrospadix is something I haven't grown before.
Feel free to
