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

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.

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 -

Cheryl Acford
