  A. konjac questions/odor
From: ken at spatulacity.com on 2004.06.24 at 15:40:59(11672)
I'm noted by friends and family for my keen sense of smell, but I challenge
anyone to say that konjac "isn't that bad" and truly mean it! I had a 6
footer open the night before my cactus club's annual show/sale - it's held
in quite a large space (over 3500 sq ft in a "U" shape) - and absolulely
everyone was complaining for two full days how awful it smelled. Since that
was the second year in a row I stunk the place up I promised to time it
better next year...

Let me remind folks that amorphs are like people...some clones of the same
species smell much worse than others. When you grow lots of the same
species from seed (plants), you'll see what I mean.

So if you find a scent free seedling save it and call it 'Right Guard'

I threw away some of the scent-free A. bulbifer seedlings figuring they
don't have any commercial value. If it wasn't for the scent, what else
would people have to talk about with amorphs. Wait...they could probably
still find something else. It just wouldn't be right to select an A.
titanum with no odor.
