  blooming Titan

I just received an e-mail from a friend at the University of Wisconsin,

One of their Amorphophallus titanum is coming into bloom. He said it will be
on a web-cam, but it wasn't up yet this morning.

y'all need to stop getting them titans to bloom. no wonder when i told the greenhouse manager at the brooklyn botanic garden that he was going to be famous and on tv when theirs bloomed, he shrugged and said "nah, these days, it's a dime a dozen..." (btw, their plant just lost its main petiole and only a small one is green.)

Ours here didn't bloom again this year, but it will bloom, and hopefully in
the near future...when you really stop to think about it, there aren't that
many people who have seen Amorphophallus titanum, in bloom or not...the
plant is really not "out there" as much as you'd think. One of ours here is
now about 5' tall and still shooting for the sky unfolded and it is an
amazing sight.
