I am a 48 year old General Medical Practitioner living just South of Hobart
the capital city of Tasmania - Australia's island state.
I first obtained tubers of A candidissimum, A consanguineum and A sikokianum
about 10 years ago. The latter deceased quickly but the former two thrived
and multiplied by division and seed respectively. I now have 4 very tall
consanguineum ladies, the tallest about 1.5metres - all with secondary leaf
fans emerging near the inflorescence.
>From there my efforts to increase have come mainly from The AGS seed list
and I am now up to about 10 discrete species. Thanks to electronic
communication the future looks much brighter.
I grow a large range of other bulbous plants and am especially keen on
Erythronium, Fritillaria, Iris, Tigridia and Trillium. I also grow orchids
especially Masdevallia, Pleurothallis, Resptria and allied species, and
Maxillaria. I am a judge with the Australian Orchid Council.
I look forward to participating in Arisaema-L.

to the contacts file instead of the distribution address!!)
