Hi Marc,

Thank you for your help.  I was hoping to find yellow and white in the same
species.  I suppose they have these in hybrids, but I am mostly interested
in comparing the differences between two of the same species or at least the
same genetic background.

I am interested to know how to find the Z. aethiopica with the colored
spadix.  Do you know anyone in the US that sells them?

Thank you very much.

BTW I also lived in New Jersey for 7 years in Highland Park, near New
