I have also grown one for a few years that I got from Arno Clement. I grow it in the same conditions as Konjac, out of soil dry and frost free (at times only just) in winter and plenty of food in summer. It has produced offsetts every year and flowered last year.

Subject: Re: [Aroid-l] New Topic - Spathanthema intermedium

I have grown one for a couple years now that I got from Arno Clement. He
sells on ebay and I've found him very reliable. I grow mine in a normal
soilless potting mix when it is in growth and leave it out of the soil when
resting (which has not been long - a couple of months perhaps). It has
flowered for me, and this prior to sending up leaves. When it flowered, I
had thought that it was sending up a leaf at first, but it turned out to be
a flower. I was afraid of rot, but it had grown a pot full of roots while
in flower. I've had no problem with rot at all. It stands about 3 feet
tall (the leaf and stock). It takes bright light. If you have other
questions, just ask. I grow quite a few different amorphophallus species
and I find this other aroid quite easy - as easy as konjac.

Hi everyone.
Does anyone of you cultivate Spathanthema intermedium (or an other
member of the Genus)and can share experiences with me ?
I was offered a small buld and am wondering wether to buy it or not.
Thanks & good growing,

Best regards from Munich,

Regarding the size of the flower of Rafflesia - is that a single bloom
or an inflorescence, such as an Amorphophallus or other aroid, or more
relevent, a Pointsettia? Euphorbs have a cluster of inconspicuous
flowers often surrounded by showy bracts. There appear to be individual
small flowers within the center of the "bloom" in the photographs I had
examined. Is there possibly any truth to this? What is the largest
(individual) flower in the plant kingdom?

Dear Bonaventure Magrys,

to my humble knowledge, it is the largest single flower in contrast to
the largest inflorescense of Amorphophallus titanum.

But let's hear one or more of the professional botanists here.... ;-)

Good growing,
Bernhard.

Dear Friends,

It is well known that in a couple of genera of aroids, the shed or
knocked-off leaflets can and will grow into new plants. The two best
known
examples are the notoriously weedy and invasive Gonotopus boivinii ( I
wonder if this is the only species in this five-species genus that does
this?), and to a lesser extent its relative, Zamioculcas zamifolia.
I am looking for any and all information on how sucessful reproduction
or
multiplication has been achieved in OTHER genera of aroids by using
small
cuttings or portions of leaf (like it has been done in Amorphophallus
titanum).
Information which I need should include the aproximate age/condition of
the
leaf cutting used, the names of rooting hormones/powder that may have
been
used to coat the cut ends of the leaflets, and importantly what genera
and
species of aroid has this method been attempted with, and which were
sucessful at acheiving rooting and new tuber/corm formation. etc.
I THINK that there has been information published on this, perhaps in a
back-issue of our Aroideana, so if possible I also like information on
when/where any publications concerning this method have been published.

Please contact me off-line if you are more comfortable with that.

Thanks a million.

Good Growing,

Julius

Thanks all for the info. It did appear that it might
have A. watermaliense in it. What does Anthurium
tarapotense look like? Does anyone have an image? I
can't find any on the internet, hardly any information
pages at all.

Thanks,

Or maybe Victoria amazonica?

i'm not a botanist, but it's my understanding
Rafflesia has the world's largest single flower.

the largest inflorescence apparently is produced by a
palm tree, not Am. titanum (but titanum has the
largest unbranched inflorescence).

why do you ask? are you thinking of growing a
Rafflesia now? :-)
