Re: [Aroid-l] Fwd: Seeds of Typhonium (Sauromatum) brevipes, or gaoligongense

Dear Marek,
         At the time of the transfer of Sauromatum to Typhonium there were 
three species in the genus Sauromatum, one very common, venosum, and the 
other two of which I need a few seeds for chemical analysis.  This request 
has nothing to do with growing.  T. venosum is indeed very easy to 
propagate.  It is actually hardy here in the Cincinnati area, although I 
don't know the source of the plants --- did they come from the northern 
limits of the range in east Asia or from the Cameroons in equatorial Africa.
         I repeat my request:  does anyone have, or know of someone who 
has, seeds of either or both of the other two former (at the time of the 
transfer) species of Sauromatum?
