  A. konjac blooming
From: "Weaver, Bill" bill.weaver at hp.com> on 2006.01.16 at 21:04:37(13709)
I have a couple Amorphiophallus konjac about to bloom and was wondering

if they are like Amorphophallus titanum and are receptive to pollen
right
after opening, and then produce pollen the next day?

Dear Bill,

Yes, that is the correct sequence of events, the timing may be a bit longer
between events, and the peak receptivity time is said to be just before or
at opening.

Does A. konjac open in the morning or evening? My only experience so far
has been with A. titanum and they always seem to start opening in the
evening.

Please, please, please make a cross. A. konjac is not big enough for me and titanum is too chill sensitive!

Czesc "yq"!

You can always try! Good hybrids have been made in many other Aroid genera.

Great!

I always wondered.... if you crossed a paeoniifolius with a gigas, would you get a giant purple-brain spadix that would fall over and hit you in the head?.......;-)

Oh Well..... My attempt at crossing A. titanum with A. konjac went
down the drain. The female flowers contracted a grey mold that I was
unable to stop. Maybe next time.
