Dear Ken,

No one asked me! "Believe it or don`t", as the old "Mad Magazine' used to
say, I have been told that this all-green, giant Gonotopus is the very same
G. bovinii, the common 'giraffe leg' or whatever, the other one with the
beautiful markings which grows to a substantially smaller plant, at least
the experts including "Lord P" whom have grown it and studied the 'naughty
bits' along the spadix say that they are a match!
So there now!

Sorry Julius, if I'd seen you loitering about I'd have asked you! You
really must do more loitering in the future.

It certainly is a different looking plant even aside from the solid
green color. At the place where the petiole divides into three, the
three joints are very large and rounded. But if His P'ness (don't say
that too fast) says they're both G. boivinii then it must be so...
