Subject: [Aroid-l] Fwd: Tuber ID Request


Dear Ron,

Cheryl in Australia and aroid Friends,

By now Cheryl would have had the unpleasant surprise of discovering that the growth on her tuber/corm
is NOT a leaf but instead is a bloom. The wonderful smell of a dead dog/dead rats is probably
 ''turning her on'' by now!
It is Amorphophallus paeoniifolius, one of the commoner species in this genus. ENJOY!

Julius
WPB, FLORIDA.

>>I received this request from Cheryl in Australia. Since I do not grow
aroids that smell foul or go dormant I cannot help. I trust one of the you
tubernaters can.
...Ron

I have been searching the internet to try and identify a plant - I helped
an
elderly fellow repot his orchids, he gave me a sack with about 8 bulbs in
it
that looked like a birds nest in varying sizes from 1 inch to 9 inches
accross - they stated shooting a few weeks ago and I planted them - the big
one has a huge growth coming up - about 9 inches high with a diameter of 5
-
6 inches.

He told me they were Dracontium Giganteum - but I cannot find any
information on them - I have attached a photo of the big one taken this
morning and I suspect that I may have to wait for it to flower, and then
try
to find out what it is, but also wondered if the birds nest type large bulb
was an identifying factor.

But just wondered if you or any of your members would know what it was -

Cheers
Cheryl Acford

Hello Ron

 

I have been

But just wondered if
you or any of your members would know what it was -

 

I thank you in
adance for any information and hope I am not a bother
