Re: amorphophallus campanulatus and arum campanulatum
Now should I really start explaining "Amorphophallus"? I've been in
trouble before in this eminent group for using language that wasn't
up to standards. O.k. here goes:
"A morpho phallus": shapeless penis, refers to the shape of the spadix
of the first ever species assigned to this genus, which happens to be
the very Am. paeoniifolius we're discussing.
"Arum": this had something to do with Mozes' brother Aaron, isn't it?
I guess some other aroidellers know more. Bud in people!
