Orontium aquaticum

 Hi, aroiders.

My last attempt to send this message disappeared into the void, so I am
trying again, and have updated it. I just wanted to make a brief report.  I
am in Georgia for a few months, and have found Orontium aquaticum common
in Okefenokee.  I was surprised to see every plant in bloom, since most
plants are dormant right now.

  In the Suwanee Canal, they grow as emergent aquatics, under a Cyrilla
racemiflora canopy with some bald-cypress.  Regular "house fly" type flies
are the apparent pollinators.  On the Chesser "Prairie," actually a shallow
lake, they also grow as energent aquatics, and are one of three codominant
species, the other two being Nymphaea sp. and Utricularia sp.  I was unable
to see the pollinator here.

  Since I will be in Okefenokee several times over these next months, I
will continue watching the plants; hopefully, I will see at least the
beginning of fruit development.  How long does it generally take?
