I will. As soon as I get the corm and it grows a good leaf. Then I can verify if it is a true Ae Ae.

Nothing ventured nothing gained!!! If I get another "Florida" I'll have a fit.

Hi Dan

The previous Ae Ae you had did it turn out to be a Florida, is it the same one in your Avatar.

Ok --- the first source --- turned out they offer the Florida variety. Which I consider not a true Ae Ae. The varigation lines do not radiate at 90 degrees from the leaf stem. I grew this one already and the fruit aren't as good as the true Ae Ae. So the search continues!!!

Found another source. Money sent. Waiting patiently....

About the Florida variety ---it's pretty, fruit tastes nice but I consider it not a true Ae Ae. The last time I got one it came from PR Giants.

These days he is so busy making money I can't get him to respond. Maybe this post might work. lol

AeAe arrived today. It's a good sized pup with leaves trimmed. Stays in the shade right now to acclimatize. Will be planted out of direct sunlight and fed hi-potassium fert 6-3-16. Pics to come in the future.

That is if I can find out how. Haven't posted pics in years cause I simply forgot how?!

Workin on it workin on it!!!
