Amorphophallus albus and albispathus are NOT the same species. A. albus is a
depressed-globose-tubered one from China (see Aroideana 19, front and back
cover) and A. albispathus is a long-tubered species from Thailand, smelling
of anise, when flowering!

> Speaking of getting ready for spring and planting/checking on our tubers,
some of my Amorphophallus never died back this fall.  I have A. albispathus
(Is that the same as albus??), excentricus, and prainii all still looking
perky.  These all came from MOBOT.  Two dracontiums I got from Wilbert
(thanks, I still owe you!) didn't sprout until Nov-Dec and just put up a
second leaf the beginning of February.
> Last year everything (including these three) had died back before
> These must fall in the category of temperate aroids, my house is pretty
cold. Or maybe they last longer as the tubers are older?
> In any case, I enjoy looking at the growing plants more than the tubers
pouting in the basement. I know we are all getting anxious for spring!
