Re: Amorphophallus availability?

Hi Jared,

Though not quite yet to the extent of appearing in a Home Depot garden
center nearest you... A. titanum has been faring quite well in  
and is no longer the rarity it once was.

I can further report that the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden currently has
a number of strong seedlings in cultivation (available for purchase,  
resulting from a direct cross of two of Jim Symon's infamous lot.

The seedlings have been offered periodically at the Garden for $30 but
(lest we forget the money's going to a good cause here...) nevertheless
suspect I could obtain an even better price for IAS members if folks are

Please feel free to respond to me off-list if you'd like- and this  
applies to
any/ all interested parties.  I would be happy to assist in any way.
