Amorphophallus henryi isn't rare but it's not common either.  At least 
one commercial source sells them (Plant Delights in Raleigh).  
Amorphophallus koratensis isn't rare at all and, in fact, is very 
common in the food markets of Thailand.  Most of the folks on this list 
know Home who comes from Thailand to the Aroid Show every year and 
brings them in by the box full.  You grow it and henryi just like 
paeoniifolius and most of the Amorphs from Thailand.  Water and 
fertilize while actively growing and then they can be kept essentially 
dry during their winter dormancy.  It's been said that koratensis 
should be kept dry but in the pot during dormancy, but I've 
successfully managed them both potted and stored out fo the pot with 
equal success.

Is Amorphophallus henryi considered rare? I just got some from ebay and 
Ive never seen them there before.

Also, there will be about ten titanum's going up for auction on ebay 
with in the next few hours, most likly by the time this is posted.Ships 
world wide.

Oh and what about Amorphophallus koratensis? Are the rare and does any 
one know how to properly take care of them? I got some of those and 
they didnt have any care instructions. Is it safe to assume that all 
amorph's from Thailand should be cared for the same way?

I tried searching the net for answers but there seems to be an 
incre3dible lack of information regarding that.
