  blooming Titanum at Basement
From: fzeren at aol.com (fzeren at aol.com) on 2008.04.27 at 12:57:37(17473)

Attached picture is my second blooming A. Titanum located at my restaurant basement (Summit, NJ). It has 2 to 3 weeks to go to get full size. Hopely everything will be OK.

I just wanted to clearify one thing: I got an email from one of our members saying that my postings are misleading the members because memebers think that I grew these blooming tubers from seeds at my restaurant basement. Although I never said in my post, My tubers are mature tubers (8 years old, ranging from 51 lb to 129 lb, I have 4 of them), purchased from another collector. I just stored my dormant tubers at the basement, and after aproximately 5 months they started to bloom under artificial lights and humid/warm enviromental conditions. Entire purpose of posting my pictures is to share my excitement with many people who are intersted in this magnisificant plant.
In short, I did not grow them at the basement, they are just blooming at the basement.
Any person like to see my plants are welcomed.

What I really want to know is: Will the restaurant be open for the
duration? ;-)

If you don't mind me asking ..... what does a mature tuber of Titanum
cost? and how available are they? Where do you put the plant when
it's in leaf form?

Exhaust fan of kitchen (large hood) sucks the smell which lasted 1 to 2 days when first one bloomed 2 months ago. There is constant air circulation.

I cant say what I paid. They were 1/2 gift, 1/2 sale type deal from a friend? who is also collector. I? personally dont know sale of mature Titanum tubers, never heard it. Usually donated to botanical gardens etc.
