  Titan Watch 8/27/99
From: "Craig M. Allen" cm_allen at yahoo.com> on 1999.08.27 at 22:11:23(3601)
The Amorphophallus titanum reached 62.5" this morning. The bud is really
fattening up. The sheath around the bud has begun to fall.

Late yesterday evening Jennifer Trusty, a grad student working at FTG's
molecular research lab, took tissue samples of the sheath for DNA studies.

The first signs of developing color are faintly visible on the inside edges of
the spathe.

The article written for the Miami Herald was postponed again. hopefully it will
be out in Saturdays paper. Miami's Channel 7 was in to film yesterday
afternoon, and the Titanum was on the news all evening and this morning, but
unfortunately I haven't gotten to see it.
