  A. titanum bloom at UCD
From: Al Wootten <awootten at nrao.edu> on 2004.06.03 at 20:30:26(11560)

Our local news just carried photos of an A. titanum in bloom at the
Conservatory of the University of California Davis in Chico, California.
It didn't look as large as some I have seen--it is reported to be a
ten year old plant. See http://greenhouse.ucdavis.edu/titan/

Clear skies,

I may be confused, but not usually *this* confused! June 9th, talked about
on the web page, has not happend yet, and Monday June 9 is not a date in
the year 2004... So, when did this actually happen?

At the top left of the site that is mentioned in the original site,
http://www-pubcomm.ucdavis.edu/search/news_detail.lasso?idd54 under the
word "News" is the date 6.3.2004. Then the date on the article itself is
June 4, 2003. I sent them an e-mail enquiry, and suggested they do a
follow-up story on the single leaf. They could pick another date out of
their hat. Not a bad story anyway. Gary

Dear Al,
Thanks for the link. It may not be as large as some blooms we have seen,
but is a perfect and most beautiful natural structure none the less!
Thanks again!

Hi Ken

I was confused also--apparently it bloomed about this time last year and
the web page refers to that blooming although the TV spot referred to
this year--3 June in fact. A pretty regular A. titanum! I suppose it
is difficult for a resource-starved University to provide fresh
material. But apparently they are doing well by this plant!

Clear skies,
