[Aroid-l] GA3 treatments on aroids

Hi Brian...long time, I know...the GA3 treatment to induce flowering can be a trial in itself, finding the right concentration and application periods.  I treated Anthurium sect. Pachyneurium plants (in the research collection of Dr. Tom Croat) way back in the late 80s and had some success.  We found that a few species actually continued setting flower spikes for many months before settling back into their natural cycle.  There are some very good articles written by Dr. Jake Henny regarding this topic and are probably listed in the aroid-l index or in Tom's aroid literature compilation on the IAS website.  Anyway, good luck with the project.  Petra

Well early this spring I put Gibberellic Acid on a few aroids that
people have been trying to ID for years. One plant was Xanthosoma Albo
marginata or micky mouse plant. So far no sign of a flower spike. I also
put this chemical on Alocasia Hilo Beauty. My plant was already fairly
mature and is around 4 feet tall now. I was checking today and I now see
a flag leaf which usually is followed by blooms. I went out earlier and
their is another growth coming out of the stem of the flag leaf it looks
like a bloom to me but I will not be able to tell for sure for at least
a few days.
Julius I know you have a lot of interest in finally getting a ID to
this plant. I hope to take some detailed photos if this is indeed a
flower and I would like to send the flower off to be looked at. I would
need detailed instructions on how you would like the flower shipped so
that it is preserved. THANKS
