I have seed of Typh. lind. that is
approaching maturity. I will have to check to see if I can send it legally
overseas. It certainly should not be a CITES issue, but if a phyto is required we would not be able to do it.
However, if you are interested, I can certainly send some to you or small
plants. I have quite a few as well as Montrichardia arborescens seedlings. I
have a couple extra divisions of the Lasia spinosa that probably originated
with you; perhaps a dozen chunks of Lasimorpha senegalense; as well as about 8-10
huge pieces of Cyrtosperma merkusii. The Cyrto. had to be chopped up last week to
make room for a Victoria in one of our pools. I am keeping a couple divisions besides what
will be on display. It is annoying to me that I have such a hard time
distributing excess material, but between the time spent packing and now the
costs (which we cannot absorb) for shipping it is tough.
I would love to be able to get them to the
aroid community but we cannot afford to ship and most people do not have the
room to absorb much plant material. If you have suggestions let me know. I hate
to throw plant material away.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Mature
Typhonodorum Lind. In European collections?
Does anyone in Europe have mature plants of the Madagascan giant aquatic aroid
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.
