There are a few of us out there who are interested in these
plants (I can think of 4 or 5 here in Palmerston North, a city
of 75000 or so people). I'm regularly in touch with several
keen NZ growers, spread around the country.

I've seen Aris. candidissimum, Aris. exappendiculatum etc
for sale in general plant shops at various times.  'Southwell
Plants' stock a few species, as did Parva.  Bill Dijk of
Daffodil Acres often has a few available. Edna Parkyn (arum
Gardens) is an excellent source.

Seems fine to me.
