  [Aroid-l] Another few Amorphophallus titanum seedling queries
From: ted.held at us.henkel.com on 2006.03.07 at 14:38:50(13917)
What happens to the titanum inflorescence after maturity? Does the thing just whither into mush or are the seeds borne on a stalk for some time afterward? How are the seeds dispersed? Is there edible flesh surrounding the seed? If so, how does the seed prevent getting scratched and otherwise attacked when the flesh is eaten? Are seedlings of titanum just distributed closely around the parent?

Note: this is a very old post, so no reply function is available.
