Hi,

I should be getting in some Am. corrugatus, kachinensis, asterostigmatus, macrorhizus, cruddasianus and longituberosus seed in a month or two when they are ripe in Thailand. I'm planning on sending them to my friend in Australia that ships me Am. galbra and Dracontium sp. since I can not send him tubers. Contact me if any of these are of interest and I may be able to get you some as well :o) Dan

Hi Nilber,

My attempts to e-mail you are bouncing back. I'm not sure why, but please try to e-mail me directly rather than using GW to see if that will work out for me. I'd like to talk to you about aroids from Brazil that maybe you can help me find and we can arrange a trade or two :o) Dan

Hi everybody.
I really have a problem here. All the nurseries i visited on the web doesnt ship to Brazil. I think that the only way to get an Amorph. bulb or seeds is buying it from someone on the forum.
So please, if anyone has a bulb or some seeds of any amorp. species contact me, please!!!
Thanx a lot.

RE: Where to get Amorphophalus seeds

nilber, I have 5 A Konjac corms growing on the front stoop of the house. I plan to self polinate at least 2 of them soon and if you wish I could send you a few seeds. Keep in touch

Wow, it would be great.
But how long it takes to the seeds to get mature before self polination?

RE: Where to get Amorphophalus seeds

nilber,
I would say about 6 months from now.
This is the first time that I am pollinating AK and I have been told that the female flowers mature first with the male later but by the time that the males are ready the females are past their prime so I will have to use different flowers.
This is why I have 5 plants growing at the moment hoping that the spread in the blooming time will match up with the male/female maturity time. The pollen will come from the first to bloom, and after the pollen is ready, and go to the second to bloom, pollen from the second will go to the third and so on..... Seeds should be possible from plants 2,3,4,or 5.

Very interesting.
With cross pollination the genetic variability of the seeds is bigger.

I hope for your sucess.
Good luck!

Hi Nilber,

I'll try e-mailing again. I should say that konjac may not be a good choice for you....I understand that in places like Miami, FLA they do not do as well because it is too hot.....or so I heard from a couple of people. Other more troical species may be your best bet. As for shipping....I can surely try a tuber this coming fall if you want one....they are basically weeds once you have one and so getting rid of them can be tough sometimes....I'll see how many I get out of the ground next fall and can likely send you two clones so that you can get seed if you want them in the future. I should have seed of a half-dozen sopecies in a month or so that can be easily shipped to you!! I'll e-mail you about Brazilian aroids in a bit :o) Dan
