Interesting Plants...

Silencer(z6 PA)April 26, 2005

Some of these plants (especially there flowers) look really neat. How would these do in z6, Philadelphia PA?

I don't really know much about them and there isn't a FAQ on the this forum, so any links or info would be great.

Thanks!

It really depends on which of them you mean. There are some like typhonium venosum that I am sure would do great where you are. The big guys like amorphophallus might do well though they are more of a gamble unless you dig them up during the winter and store on a shelf in the garage. If you really like these guys I would suggest taking some time to explore www.aroid.org I would from there do some googling to narrow down what ones you are interested in.. Believe me aroids are source of addiction for many so you shouldnt have a problem finding info out there.

Yes....that is what it says....and yes..the derivation IS due to the appearance of the inflorescence.....try to restrain yourself from giggling and whispering......
