Dear all,

if interested, fresh seeds from Amorphophallus paeoniifolius of Malaysia are
available. Each package (out of 25 in total) will contain two seeds which
are sent in moist peat in an air-cushion enveloppe by air-mail.

In order to receive a package, please read the following information

1.) Do NOT REPLY reply to this e-mail but send your POSTAL ADDRESS to
    my private e-mail at: malkmus@rareplants.de
    All replies to Aroid-L will be deleted.
2.) Seeds will be shipped from 26 March onwards during frost free 
    weather as long as stock lasts on a first in, first out basis. 
3.) I will not reply to any inquiries unless absolutely necessary.
4.) A contribution to cover costs is applicable as follows:
    US$ 8.00 for non EU residents (USA, Canada, Australia etc.)
    US$ 6.00 for EU residents (France, Germany, UK etc.)
    Please make your contribution in US$ CASH ONLY (NO CHEQUES please),
    AFTER you received the package, to:
    Mr. Bjoern Malkmus
    Am Parkfeld 14 E
    D-65203 Wiesbaden
5.) Sow seeds in any well drained humus rich soil (e.g. 50% peat, 30% grit
    sand and 20% clay containing soil) rather flat (1cm/0.4" deep) at 
    medium-high temperatures (minimum of 20C/68F, better are 25C/77F).
    Soil should be always moist but not wet, place pots rather sunny until
    leaf appears (between 4 to 10 weeks), then place pots half-shaded.
    Seedlings will produce new leaves one after each other until their
    first dormancy starts (unpredictable). Then keep pots rather dry,
    they might be stored in a cooler place during plants' dormancy 
    (15-20C/58-68F). Check pots every two weeks for sign of new growth.
    As soon as new leaf emerges start to water again. 
    A. paeoniifolius might become large within short time, so be sure to 
    have the space for it ...

Best wishes
