  Amorphophallus titan in California
From: "D. Christopher Rogers" <crogers at ecoanalysts.com> on 2007.05.04 at 00:38:03(15624)
Hello, all!!

One of the Amorphophallus titans at the
University of California at Davis Botanical Conservatory will be blooming in
the next day or so. Any aroid folks in California (or those who want to travel
here) are welcome to come and see it. The Conservatory will be open to the
public through the bloom.

Take a look at the following links:

Bonjour ,

It is with much joy, enthusiasm and amazement which I have just seen, on
television, in the newspaper of the current events, at 1 p.m., report with the
flowering of Amorphophallus titanum of California. I am happy because the
communication is good between the United States and France.

It was a
great bloom!

I hope to
visit France again someday.
