  Typhonium violifolium -revisited

Pete, Wilbert, Don etc;
In looking over the earlier comments on this species, I have
a few 'experiences' to add.
One leaf is making a small bulbil at the intersection of the
leaf blade and the petiole (ala P cordata etc), but no sign (yet) of
anything at the leaf tip.
The single flower (so far) was given multiple sniff tests at
various times of the day/night and NO scent was ever detected - just
me ?

Boy, these American noses are beginning to intrugue me. I also have to
believe that there are Amorphophallus muelelri/bulbifers that some of you
claim smell good!! And now we have somebody NOT smelling the wonderful sweet
scent of Typhonium violaefolium........ This is driving me nuts! I rent a
greenhouse of 20 meter long, 6 meter high and 6 meter wide and ONE single T.
violaefolium inflorescence can fill the entire space strongly with its
smell!! Go figure!
