  I peeked. It's a Flower!

I took a peek inside and it is unquestionably a flower. The bud measures 45 inches tall
and 9 inches across. We will be wrestling it out of the greenhouse on Frida y and taking
it to the UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley. Looking at photos of its' 2005 b looming and
some of its' siblings I'd guess we have two weeks for it to open fully. (Do n't quote me
on that though)

You are brave. If I had a plant like that, I would assume
the act of my peeking inside would be enough to cause the
flower to abort then and there. It's not that I have a
brown thumb, but I find my success rate is inversely
proportional to how much I value the plant.
