Re: Dracontium blooming-Snake-like petiole

Dear Julius,

Thanks for the compliment....I feel very fortunate indeed!!

I'd love to have a GH someday where I would have more luck, but during the
7-8 months of the year they have to be inside they are in my bathroom
window on a heat mat so they are warm and get some humidity every morning
because of the shower running.....perhaps this is why I have had some
success?  D. polyphyllum and D. prancei both came from a grower in
Australia 5 years ago.....it was a bit of an expensive venture with the
phyto fees and shipping, but I am so pleased I have been able to keep them
in good health.  I also have a couple of other species, D. amazoense and
perhaps 3-4 no ID plants I have been fortunate to get from friends :o)

Thanks for the wonderful information on the use of the term Jergon by the
way as I did not realize this was the connection!!

Good growing all,

Gibsonia, PA

Hi All,  I jut wanted to share my enthusiasm 
that after 5 years I have finally got one of my Dracontium polyphyllum
for the first time.  I'm not convinced they like the window seat they get 
in my bathroom or dining room for the winter, but they muddle through and 
finally rewarded me.  This genus rarely gets discussed here, but it is my 
favorite amongst the tuberous aroids so what the heck :o)
I have no idea if pics can be directly imbedded, so 
if that did not work I have attached the link below.
Spring is roaring in here in zone 6 so hopefully in 
2 more months that tender stuff like the Dracontium can go outside for the
