Subject : [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus Gonatopus Boivinii

Dear Steve,

First off, it is not a species of Amorphophallus, but it belongs to a seperate genus of around 5 or so species that originate in S. E. Africa.
In Florida, G. boivinii is considered by most growers to be an invasive pest, as it seems to spread everywhere in and around the greenhouses or growing benches. Like Zamioculcas, to which it is related, it grows easily from fallen or dropped leaflets. In Florida I have seen two 'forms' of this plant, both SAID to be G. boivinii, one has mottled petioles, and so has been called the 'giraffe knee' plant (because of the obvious geniculum or 'knee' half way up the petioles), but the other is all-green in color and can grow to about twice the size of the former. I don`t know if the two have ever been carefully compared to each other to know for certain if thay are the same species.
It can be left growing all year, or dried off slowly and stored in its pot over the cool/dormant season.
In Florida it is almost impossible to kill this very hardy plant.
I hope this informatuion is of help.


Can someone out there tell me about Amorphophallus Gonatopus Boivinii how does it like to be stored etc

Thanks Steve
