  Phalloid Regularity
From: Don Burns donburns at macconnect.com> on 2000.07.11 at 20:32:51(5062)
I hate to be a spoil-sport, but most of my phalloids are on schedule, as
usual. The sole species that is not on schedule is titanum. But then
titanum has no schedule. Two of them crashed over the last six weeks, but
three have awakened in the same period.

I suspect that the lack of regularity may have something to do with the
somewhat irregular weather in the more northern climates some of you live
in. Here in 10b temperature and humidity levels are very predictable and
consistent year to year. The down side is that we frequently have
evenings/nights like tonight: temp = 81degF, RH = 90+%. (But the plants
love it.)

My amorphs are late, but I thought that was due to me planting and getting
them outside late this year.
But one oddity I've noted, the first aroid to sprout and bloom every year
(OK, the 2 years I've had it)
is my Arisema candidissimum (pink version). This blooms very early and
smells like cotton candy. But accounts I've read call it a late riser,
often not until June. I think mine came up late Feb or early March.

Cands at Junes end usually, here in zone 6, but Ive started some earlier by
putting them barebulbed under bright humid conditions or by propmptly
refridgerating as soon as an early summer (drought) dormancy sets in and 4
months later popping them out.

Hey Sue, how's the voodoo lilies and the Pinellia?
