Dear Wilbert, I have read some intesting articles about Amorphophallus and
nematodes. In florida we have a problem ants. I also read an ad for a
product that is supposed to help eliminate them in soil and pots. The ants
do not seem to bother the plants, but they bite like hell. The product is
called Beneficial Nematodes (Heterorhabditis bacteriophora). Have you heard
of this species of nematode. Is it the one that is harmfull to Amorphs. I
HAVE NOT USED IT YET!!!
