Just tought to let you all know..

I´m getting quite fund of these plants!

Pictures later today, the camera is still on holiday with the wife..

A. Rivierii konjac is not there yet..perhaps in a year or two..hopefully!

D. Vulgaris is also a questionmark yet..it has sent up a superb brightly leaf stem..but it´s the first year after planting the corm..so it´s doubtfull if i see a flower this summer..again, i hope i´m wrong here!

Say tuned for the shot´s..and here they are..

Posted Image
Bulbifer it is!..slowly unfolding it's nice pinkish white flower...

Posted Image
Dracunculus leaf..a very intense green color..in good light conditions it's almost glowing!

Posted Image
Amorphophallus Konjac..leaf stage..the plant behind it is Arisaema Speciosum.

Posted Image
A. Konjac again..also leaf stage, motherplant of the smaller one above. About twice the size in every direction(except maybe height..yet)

Posted Image
A quick overview of the aroid area in my frontyard..the well holds U. Vulgaris.

That's it for now..i'll post some update shot's as the Bulbifer unfolds..

Okay..progress shot on the A. Bulbifer flower.

I´ll try to update three times a day..sadly, i cannot provide a webcam service..like the one in Leiden for both the A. Titanum flowers..

Enjoy!

Nice pics, Danny!! :wink:
my bulbifer didn't flower for me this year (it did last year), its spotted stem view is still worthwhile for us-aroid fans though.. :)
