Re: Amorphophallus konjac

I do not know what the story is on A. konjac.  I have a couple of clones
that were collected in tropical areas and even they do not do well for me.
Better  than the 'regular' ones, but not great ......  I have tried a
couple of media combinations and different light situations but if it is A.
konjac - it just does not do well for me.  There are so many others that I
just do not take the time anymore to try to find out.  Fanny Phillips sends
me one every now and then....  Just to see if they will make it...  They
all last for a few years and then end it all...  I told her not to send me
any more...  no need to needlessly kill them....
