Great idea! I've just started collecting them (can't imagine why!) and hate to ask dumb questions of those already expert!

Hello all,

Just letting everyone know that my site will be up within a week. For those of you that don't know, this site will be for beginning collectors of Amorphophallus. I have been working on it for 8 months.
I am still in need of any images you would make available to me. The "Ghost" titan and the shattered glass would be great, along with the rarer species. All images will be given a photo credit and link to your site will be added.
Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Snow (Marie Snow)

I get white segregants from my Amorphophallus konjac 'Shattered Glass'. They live for about 3-6 months depending on the corm size but then they die out and when I dig them up there is no new corm.

for images read

and scroll down with the "nearly white" link to see pure white ones
