Hello again Aroid lovers,

News of another titan flowering in the US reached my ears... and haven't
seen it mentioned on here yet so, for all interested bods, the link's below!

I can't open the webcam. Is it down, or just overloaded from the masses who
want to view it???

Hi Cyndi and all,

It seems they're having trouble with webcam (see link below), but you can
read and see the latest here:

Wish I was there!

I was able to get in a couple of times, and managed to see it in full bloom.
I even got a pic. :-)

I was hoping to see it decline and observe the formation and development of
seeds, but I haven't been able to get back in for several days now. Oh, well!
At least i got to see it in its prime. :-)

Ahh well done!

I've only seen a flowering Titan in the flesh once, at RBG Kew in 2006. but
it was the day after I'd flown in to London from Melbourne, and I was so
jetlagged and out of it, I can hardly remember seeing it! And to make
matters worse, I've since lost the one photo taken of me with it :(

So, it's still on my long list of great plants to see, in situ or ex!

I'm afraid the only Aroid I'm ever likely to see in bloom in situ is the T. venosum I've planted in my garden. ;-)

If the Huntington's ever blooms again, I might have to drag my husband down there!
