Re: [Aroid-l] Sauromatums, hardy and giant

	We grow lots of sauromatum from seed and had the most unusual thing last
year...3 dwarf seedlings that looked like crosses with helicodiscerous
(sp).  I planted one out thinking it would grow out of it, but instead it
looks more like a cross this year.  I won't know for sure until I see a
flower, but this is one strange plant.
