Howdy All,

Given my queries a couple of months back I thought I would give you an
update on the seed I received from the Archibalds in Wales.....

Given responses from people I wasn't expecting a great deal, but was hopi=ng
for lots <grin>.

The results are as follows (as it stands right now).  All were sown on th=e
17th June 2001.

A. rhombiforme  - 9 of 10 germinated.  Other seed still solid and looks v=iable
A. dilatatum  - No sign of germination, nor can I find seeds anymore.
A. triphyllum ssp stewardsonii - A couple at least have germinated but VE=RY
slow.  Many seeds have disappeared.  I know that one germinated a good
month ago and it still hasn't sent a leaf up.  Can triphyllums not surfac=e
the first year but set up bulbs below ground?
A. sp. (Yunnan) - Signs of a couple of radicals when checked this morning.
Most seeds still viable from the looks of it.

A couple of Arum species are outside so I don't expect anything until spr=ing.

I'm not sure if this was of interest to people or not but I thought, give=n
my query of a couple of months back, that I should provide feedback to
others on my experiences as well.
