dear dr. licht,

your post brought back memories of visting the berkeley gardens and seeing this plant for the first time.  back then the bulbs were not that big, as i recall.  also, remember seeing the beautiful large african Dioscorea tubers such as elephantipes and another one (maybe rupicola).

btw, please remember to not send back the whole digest to the list when replying.  thank you.

ken, that is just gigantic.  thanks for posting that photo.
