Re: collecting titnaum seeds in the wild - forbidden?
as far as it is discussed in our forum, it seems that sellers get /buy whole seeds heads from people in rural areas and resell them via the amorphophallus face book group or via ebay.
I learned meanwhile that botanists collecting plants/seeds need a permit for genera etc. in Sumatra.
It would be interesting to know, if permits are necessary for A. titanum seeds as well and if local people may harvest seeds on their own land. There are clips in the www where you can see fruiting A. titanum in banana plantations for instance.
Happy growing, Bernhard.

The species is very rare in the wild and to find it in fruit in Madagascar would be even more incredible and surely not worth the expense considering that people are getting seed production in cultivation.

Just out of curiosity-I have no plans to buy any, so please don't send me hatemail-does 200,00 mean they are selling the seeds for $200.00 US dollars each? Comma instead of a period there, so I'm not sure what that translates to.
