  [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus titanum leaf in progress
From: bobrien at gustavus.edu (Brian O'Brien) on 2008.04.16 at 03:20:44(17403)
Hi All,
It's not an inflorescence, but we're a bit transfixed here by the
progress of the massive leaf of our titanum that flowered last May
(and also by the St. Paul titanum that recently flowered - I was up
there for a short while last Thursday, and it was a wonderful
experience). Here are some posts and photos on the Minnesota titanum
events that I've
made: http://arboretum.blog.gustavus.edu/category/titan-arum/ , and
a link to the posts on the St. Paul plant (Marjorie McNeely
Conservatory) by Margaret Yeakel-Twum, Keeper of the Como
Titanums: http://www.comozooconservatory.org/cons/gardenblog.shtml
The leaf development on our end of the titanum events is also
documented on my Flickr site: http://www.flickr.com/photos/aeranthes/
