Re: [aroid-l] nasty neighbor
What ghastly neighbours. My daughter is very lucky - she had nine blooming at once last year in her front garden a few feet from the street. No one complained about the smell, but there were some raised eyebrows about the buzzards circling overhead. Derek

This brings back the memory of being threatened with being thrown out of my rental house because I owned dangerous animals ( boas, pythons, kings snakes). All of my animals were very small and no threat to anyone. I finally had to remove them from my house although I kept a 4' monitor lizard.
Bottom line is that you should fight this sort of foolishness Make them prove it. You'll at least have till summer. Some well placed road kill may help in a defense.
Good luck. We're with you all the way.

I discovered yesterday that someone who lives on my street has sent a letter
of complaint to our local neighborhood association mentioning my "smelly
plant", Amorphophallus paeonifolius. Of course they don't like my
gesneriads, orchids, bromeliads either, but this is the only plant they
specifically singled out.
Do any members of the International Aroid Society have any comments about
this person ?
