  Amorphophallus titanum leaf sizes
From: "Tim Grigg" <tgrigg at EdenProject.com> on 2010.01.29 at 00:29:23(20524)


Out of general interest, I'm looking into the full heights of the Titan arums leaf, mainly in cultivation.

I have got two mature fully grown leaf in the attach picture.

The one on the left is 484cm high, 420cm wide and 104cm circumstance.

And the one on the right is 322cm high, 434cm wide and 88cm circumstance.

I have already had four Titan Arum flowers grown at the Eden Project, Uk and wondering whether the leaf size, genes or size of tuber affect the height of the flowers?

Also I'm finding out is there anyone grown a large mature Titan Arum leaf in cultivation and any known leaf sizes grown in the wild.
