  Re: gigantic leaf species around the wor

Julius, no. The shot of D. Attenborough with "giant arum" is
definitely NOT that of an Amorphophallus. He *does* go to Sumatra
in the docu and waits for a day or two while Amorphophallus titanum
opens and he may have, indeed, referred to it as a "giant arum,"
but he also gives its correct binomial. The sequence I was referring
to shows something more akin to an Alocasia or Xanthosoma.
