Re: Mature Typhonodorum Lind. In European collections?

Dear Julius,
How are you and Susan doing?  It's been a while since we communicated.
As you know, I have two large, mature Typhonodorums.  They flower repeatedly throughout the year, but seed production is sometimes unreliable, for whatever reason.  Or it may just be that I'm not checking my plants regularly enough!  Whatever the case, now that I know you are looking for seeds, I'll keep a sharper lookout.
All the other aquatic aroids, including Dracontioides, are doing great, in spite of the fact that our total rainfall for the last five  months has probably not exceeded one inch!.  Planted in giant containers with no drainage, they flourish.  I'll keep you posted.
All the best,

Subject: [Aroid-l] Mature Typhonodorum Lind. In European collections?

Dear Aroidophyles,
Does anyone in Europe have mature plants of the Madagascan giant aquatic aroid Typhonodorum lindleyanum?
I would like to try to obtain a couple of seeds for an aroid grower in Italy.  Growers in the USA do not seem willing to post seed overseas.
This plant species, when mature, bears LOTS of huge seeds, so anyone with a mature plant probably has many seeds every year, so lets be kind and do a ''good deed'' for a fellow aroid grower.

Good Growing,
