RE: A. henryi seed

Dear henryi freaks,

The caption of the photo in Aroideana 19 of A. henryi, also says that
the inside of the spathe is maroon, which is the more striking part
compared to the spathe outside, which is green indeed. 

Beware that seeds of henryi may take more than a year to germinate, or
it may be shorter, so don't despair when it takes a while.
