Yes I do. Montoso Gardens in PR sells them. I've bought a few from them in the past. I used to have a bunch growing at my mom's house but I've since lost track of them. I think there may be a few still growing but they die back in the winter and they have not regrown yet this year. I will check this week and see if any are still alive in the ground and I will get you one. I've shared them out over the years so if I can't find one at my mom's house I am sure someone I gave one too will have some extra rhizomes to share.

MK,
It tastes pretty good. I'll see if I can get you one too.

Here are some pics I took last summer of the tippi tambo at Montoso Gardens in PR.

Trini1 and Mangokush,
I have some of the C. allouia plants available right now if either of you want. Email me if you do.

If anyone else is interested in a plant too let me know I may have one or two extra.
