From MEMORY, the development of the fertilized spadix to ripe fruit took
about three months on these A. andreanum-type plants, but we are talking
over 45 years ago! I know that some other sections of Anthyrium have VERY
long fruit development times.
By the way, Vic Soukup needs the seeds he asked for as his research involves
extracting certain compounds from fruit/seeds, so having plants alone does
him no good.
>>And,, how long do the seeds grow uo> As I know they grow thay in do the
seciton Aroideade is very long.
