  Re: [Aroid-l] Spring STINKS!
From: "Christopher Rogers" <crogers at ecoanalysts.com> on 2009.04.27 at 17:03:14

A fortnight ago I had in bloom:


Three konjaks,

Two Helicodiceros muscivorus

4 Arum palestinum (both the foetid and the rotten fruitecotypes)

6 Arum italicum

4 Arum dioscorides


On Easter morning I had around twenty Typhoniumroxburghii in full glory.


Right now I am in anticipation of my very firstSynandrospadix vermitoxus inflorescence. I have no idea about its odor, foul orfair.


I love spring.

Upon getting home from work yesterday afternoon, as soonas I opened the

car door, this awful putrid smell hit me......and I knewexactly what it was.


In the garden the following were in full bloom:


11 Amorphophallus konjac

1 Amorphophallus dunnii

9 Helicodiceros muscivorus

4 Dracunculus vulgaris

6 various Arum species


The scent of the tall bearded Iris never had a chance ofbeing noticed -- Spring
