  Amorph titanum at Kew

Hi everyone,
I just came back from chatting with the guys at the Botanic Gardens Kew and
there is a second Amorph titanum about to flower! Very exciting for them
since they have only ever had one in any year. This is a smaller tuber than
the previous so the flower is smaller also. Having looked at the flower bud I
would predict sometime next week for flower opening. For those who missed
the first one I have put a photo I took on:

in Geoffaroid, its very important, http sites are case sensitive!

They are still looking for pollen to cross pollinate (they never did get any
for the first flower so tried self pollination but its not looking good.....)
so if anyone has any they can spare please send it a.s.a.p. I can pass it on
to them since I go into Kew to do some research twice a week, my address is
