Re: Jasarum Growers?
Julius: It is a bitch to grow because of the special area it grows
(submerged in blackwater streams flowing off white-sand areas). We
tried it once. Josef did have it in cultivation but I don't know if he
still has it. If he can't grow it I would guess you might as well not
try! My student Jane Whitehill needs some material for her studies so
if you succeed in finding it let me know.
