    The Amorphophallus konjac I got a while back has just sent up a new growth right next to the base of the original plant. At the moment there is simply a blunt pink "thorn" coming up from the soil, is this a common occurance?

    Cool, but no idea. All I can say is that Sauromatums will send up 2 stalks. So I'm guessing this is normal for your Amorphophallus.

    They don't flower and leaf at the same time do they?
    I assumed they either flower from the tuber, then leaf, then dormancy or just leaf, then dormancy. It will be interesting to see what becomes of this!
    I will try and get a picture done today to post.

    Hi Josh

    I'l be posting you a bunch of A peoniifolius bulbs when I get home (in about 2 to 3 weeks), sorry it has taken so long man. I got some for a few other people on the forums that have been asking too. If you don't mind I may send them all to you and the others can send you a SASE. Please let me know if tha's not cool.

    Re you konjac, don't do this but I bet that if you dug it up right now you'd find that new "thorn" is an extra stem, growing from a new bump on the side of your original tuber. What you probably have is a new bulb forming.

    When the plant goes dormant, dig it up and you should be able to break off the new bump and when you replant it you'll have a separate plant.

    Good job.

    Cheers, Troy.

    That'd be great Troy, if you can send Josh a bunch of A. paeoniifolius bulbs, then we can send him a SASE for it. Josh, it'd be really cool if you can help us out [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Thanks to you both in advance!

    It would be fine to receive and distribute the bulbs but I am most worried about having these bulbs shipped to me without proper documentation.
    I do not want to end up paying any fines if the package happens to be siezed by customs. I don't see Amorphophallus (or any Aroids) on the Cites list but what about Phytosantiary, I have papers which state that seeds and bulbs are required to have this accompanying them in transit through US borders. How much is a phyto ticket? Perhaps everyone who wants bulbs (myself included) can pay an equal portion of it and then we can use my import permit sticker/number as well so everything can be on the up and up.

    I took a picture of the second growth last night. However my web provider for my sites has been fooling around with the server and it keeps telling me they're full when I've actually only used about 1/100th of the space I've got available so I can't post any images...

    Yeah, how much would a phyto ticket be? If not too expensive, I'm willing to pay my share. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
