Spathantheum, Synandrospadix & Taccarum

Spathantheum, Synandrospadix and Taccarum are tuberous aroids from South America. They belong to small genera with few species only and usually develop several leaves per plant in one growing season and a showy inflorescence consisting of an outer spathe and an inner spadix. All are easily grown in any rich, well drained substrate in a sunny to partially shaded spot in summer. As soon as the leaf starts to yellow (usually in late summer to autumn), keep dormant corms rather dry at a minimum of some 10°C.

Price is given per package (10 seeds) or per dormant corm (diameter given in ø cm or length given in cm).

Note: All corms are available for a delivery within Europe only ! Seeds are shipped worldwide. For Non-European customers only: We do ship dormant tubers outside Europe, provided that all risk is upon the buyer. We do not issue any phytosanitary certificate, which is officially required for most countries. We kindly ask you to check with your local import regulations before placing an order!
