RE: Lysichiton Americanum Query
Since I haven`t actually seen the species in question, it is difficult to
offer a suggestion as to the reason for the form of the "gel body" you have
observed on the seed of Lysichiton. Any ideas from other members/lurkers
would be welcomed.
You may want to continue your observations on the infructesences` development
under natural conditions, to try to learn what the agents of distribution are;
they may be animals, birds or water. By doing so you may find a clue as to
the reason for the shape/form of these structures. So little is recorded
about these aspects of Aroids that it presents us with a great chance to
add to the knowledge of these interesting plants.
Keep up the good work.
