Afortnight ago I had in bloom:
4Arum palestinum (both the foetid and the rotten fruit ecotypes)
OnEaster morning I had around twenty Typhonium roxburghii in full glory.
Rightnow I am in anticipation of my very first Synandrospadix vermitoxus inflorescence.I have no idea about its odor, foul or fair.

Ofall mine in the ground, the only ones up so far are the Dracunculusvulgaris. I must have one of the "wimpy sissy" clones. Itonly smells faintly - kind of like a dead cat in the next-door to the next-doorneighbor's yard.
