  Re: [Aroid-l] Lack of a scent on the Anthurium regale spadix

Thanks very much. I've received several private emails
with similar trains of thought. I sent my original query to "Dr." Julius
Boos the same day I sent it to Dr. Croat. Julius has a "way with
words". He answered my question in such detail and so vividly as to
totally explode my "theory". If you've been following my daily photo posts
on the spathe and spadix you will see I use comments from Dr. Croat,
Julius, LariAnn Garner and others to explain what can be seen each day. I
used a great deal of Julius' response to explain why my "theory" had little
value. Interestingly, Julius also used your "moth" explanation as
well. Oh well, it was a thought! Thanks for the responses. If
you're interested in reading what Julius and Dr. Croat have been saying about
the event, here is the link. There are now 3 pages of photos of the 35
days of the spathe and spadix.
