Hello Julius and everyone,
I wonder if these giant corms are the
result of the breeding program in the Indian subcontinent. Please see back
issues of Aroideana on this. If so, I suspect that one of the side results of
the program has been to minimize the likelihood of flowering of these corms. I
know this to be the case for some of the named cultivars.
I find this size corm in UK greengrocers
in the summer, and I am told that the general name is suran – perhaps one
of many names in various parts of the subcontinent. I have had no luck so far
in finding them in South Florida grocers. To
be honest, I don’t think that 24” diameter is particularly unusual
or “giant” – mine go at least 18” and that is with my
appalling growing skills.

This giant form of A. paeoniifolius is available in S.
Florida, so there should not be a need to import it.
I'll wait to see if and when the owners/growers shake the dust off their shoes
and the sand out of their eyes and reply to this forum!!
I saw a tuber that must have measured close to 24" in dia. some years
ago. I THINK Scott had and may have sold some plants of this giant

If anyone else would be interested in obtaining tubers or seed, perhaps
a group order could be initiated, depending upon the costs.
Just a thought,
