Re: Amorphophallus impressus question

Hi Maarten,

Yes, this is perfectly normal for A. impressus.  When I first grew them
from seed I saw this and was quite surprised as you are, but Wilbert
confirmed this was typical.  Unfortunately, they stop being hirsute once
they get larger.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus impressus question

I have recently aquired an Amorphophallus impressus tuber with offsets. It
produced a petiole with small hairs on it (see link), which I have not seen
with any other species of Amorphophallus that I have in culture. I have
looked in the literature to see if this is normal for A.impressus, but
could not find any information on this. Can anybody tell me if this is
normal? Thanks!
