Sourcing Anchomanes seeds or bulbs

Hi Lucas,

I grew one Anchomanes species but lost it years ago. I checked with a 
couple of friends who also grow a number of tuberous aroids and used to 
have it but both also lost theirs. One is checking with more aroiders, 
and if he comes up with a source I'll let you know by private email, 
unless others express interest.

Tuberous aroids are a favorite group for me and I'm still growing and 
acquiring them indoors and out. Several beyond the usual temperate 
genera (Arum, Pinellia, Arisaema) have been hardy outdoors here in NW 
Arkansas, nominally USDA zone 6, for decades, including Dracunculus 
vulgaris (not all strains are that hardy; this one is local), 
Amorphophallus konjac, Sauromatum (syn. Typhonium) venosum, and 
Typhonium giganteum. In mild years there are some others that will make it.
