  A.titanum at Fairchild Tropical Garden
From: "Susan T. Staiger" <ststaiger at earthlink.net> on 1998.06.28 at 09:38:01(2370)
The pollen was ripe Fri. evening,collected,and sent to Atlanta where
another titanum is on the verge of blooming.It's purpose achieved,the
Miami spadix collapsed at 8:00a.m.EDT on Sat. There were quite a few
visitors to the inflorescence throughout the day and most were glad to
see it ----erect or not.
As the day went on one could almost see the wilting and drawing in of
the remainder of the inflorescence----it won't be long before it is
entirely down. It's been a fascinating process!!!
Although sometimes it's difficult to explain the Amorphophallus
"concept"

to non- botany minded people, I think most of them have appreciated the
opportunity to learn about something so unique.
