  Titan Watch at Fairchild Garden, 8/29/99
From: "Craig M. Allen" cm_allen at yahoo.com> on 1999.08.29 at 17:56:30(3606)
Titan watch: 69.50"
Amorphophallus titanum 931146A
The inflorescence looks fuller with the ruffle at the top of the spathe a
little looser. The Deep red color is more pronounced, showing through the leaf
tissue at the over lap quite a bit. The growth has slowed down from 5 inches to
2.75 last night. If it follows the pattern set last year the growth will slow
to a stop and bloom a few days later. I am getting that FEELING that last year
made me show up at work in the middle of the night to be sure I didn't miss
anything. I'm sure it isn't ready to open yet. The other horticulture people
that have grown these agreed that their plants stopped growth before blooming.
Keep a watch on the FTG web page, and hopefully the local news as the fragrant
event gets closer. The update will be on the site as quickly as we know.
