  Amorphophallus titanum propagation
From: "Chad E. Husby" <chusby at vt.edu> on 1998.09.19 at 07:46:50(2614)
Dear List,

Many thanks to those who replied to my A. titanum
cultivation/propagation inquiry. Today I learned more about the origin of
my plant and this information seems to answer my propagation question.

Apparently, my plant was an offset from a seed-grown plant. The
original seedling plant grew for a couple of years until its tuber was
causing its pot to actually bulge. When it was placed in a bigger pot, it
was found that it could be separated into two plants. I now have one of
the two. This corresponds to a message that I received which mentioned that
someone on the Aroid List found that his A. titanum formed offset tubers
when grown in a relatively small pot. Perhaps I won't be hasty to repot
mine!
