Hi Susan and Derek,

I have a source for Couborough in Germany, Christoph Kruchem,
www.hortensis.de. He also sells "Mr. Martin" (which is said to have giant
blooms, but I've never seen it) and "White Giant".
The latter I have and it is very different from a normal aethopica, making
"giant" leaves spreckled with white and growing very fast even during cold
weather. This variety seems to need no dormancy, I put mine into the
basement (somehow anticipating it would die down) and it just keeps growing
and flowering. I can very much recommend growing it. 
is a pic, I placed the plant outside to give it a little light as it has
been quite warm here (Munich) recently. The pot is 40x40 cm, and a flower is
just coming (sorry for the poor quality of the pic, it's too dark outside to
take good photos).

Hi All,

Although I can't identify it, I'd like to ask what are the "naughty bits"?
Are they the male flowers?
Do they have any scientific name?

  Subject: [Aroid-l] Dracontium ID please

  Hi All,

  I have been fortunate enough to have another Dracontium bloom and I was
hoping for an ID from the experts on the list.  This one is supposedly a
native of Brasil which would seem to narrow it down quite a bit, but
honestly, I can not be certain of that claim just because it originally came
from there!  As you can see, this one has produced a lot of offsets from the
the main tuber without me making any attempt to remove them.  I suppose the
question is, have they fused to the main tuber or are they free from momma
so they can eventually be potted up separately.  

  I apologize for the poor pics in at least one case, but indoor shots are
not the easiest this time of year.  I hope the "naughty bits" will give a
clear ID on this one so I can tag it as something besides "Dracontium sp.
Brasil #1".  I have 2 others from Brasil as well that grow nothing like this
one so hopefully those will be different when they get around to blooming in
the future.

  As always, if anyone has any Dracontium they would like to sell when it
gets warmer please keep me in mind as this genus still has me excited.  I
currently have: D. prancei, D. polyphyllum, D. amazonense, D. spruceanum
(all based on flowers) as well as a no-ID from Peru, two no-IDs from Brasil
and one no-ID from a lady in Hawaii.  I have seen these for sale on ebay a
couple of times this winter, but when you never see the north side of 0C for
weeks at a time it is the wrong time of year to try and acquire anything
like this.

  Thanks in advance,

  Gibsonia, PA
