Thanks for the info. A. rivierii (spelling) is now A. konjac and
is the source of Amorphophallus infection. I give them to poor
unsuspecting collectors and they become smitten with the beauty
and smell. Usually you can get fairly good sized corms at a
reasonable price. A. konjac can be grown outside as far north
as Chicago.
