Would this be a case of planthropomorphizing?

Good morning!

I am Betty in Cincinnati. I don't know much aboout many aroids although I am an active member and editor of the Cincinnati Cactus and Succulent Soceity. I am hooked on amorphophallus, but don't know enough to participate in the forum...a dedicated lurker! After travelling to Plant delight nursery several years, I learned about many plants and topics that have sent me in many directions for knowledge.

Right now I have a lot of amorphophallus bulbifer patches and am dying to find out if they stink or smell good...

I love your word! planthropomorphizing And hope to utilize it one of these days! (I do talk to the plants....although not always as kindly as I should.)

What does everyone do with an overflow of amorphophallus?
I don't want to give them to people who don't care about them.
Right now I have them potted separately and they are starting to come up.

Also, am I permitted to use commentaries from our forum in our local newsletters? Do I give credits to individuals or keep things private and merely mention that it is a forum discussion article? Our society has joined the aroid society at my request. And our society is small with 28 members and 15 of them active.
As with many societies in the USA, many of the originating active members are getting older and no longer travel to meetings or collect plants although they still read newsletters and thirst for knowledge.

Thanks for your time!

I didn't want to use that pronoun - but my live oak tree Minerva made
