Just got off the phone with Craig Allen at 7:40 A.M......

It is starting to open! The spathe has released about 8 10 inches from the
top and the opening where the spathe meets is starting to open... At 7
A.M. he had to stick his nose in pretty close to get a fragarance but at
7:30 A.M..... ANYWHERE in the Conservatory was a place to get the
fragarance... So, Today, June 24, 1998 is the DAY!

>From all reports... It should stay open about 3 days....

Guys,

Do NOT necessarily count on three days! Our Big One a few years ago was
open only 18 hours and only 5 hours of that was maximum expansion!

Enjoy,
Wilbert

NBC featured the opening on the 8am News on the Today Show. There were
some very good angles on the inflorescence, ending with a small child
holding his nose. Katy Couric expressed a desire to smell it herself.

Wish I could be there!

Clear skies,
Al
