About Selby's Amorphophallus titanum:

Wilbert mentioned that they had disappointing seed set in their Am. titanum.
I can't say for sure how ours will come out. The berries are now very plump
and bright orange...swelling up nicely. Part of the spadix did not develop
berries. We did not cut off the spathe as Wilbert recommended, and
pollination is very difficult if you leave the spathe on. A portion of the
back side of the inflores. was difficult for Harry to reach when applying
pollen, so this area (approx. 15% of the total female area) is void of any

Harry Luther did open one of the berries yesterday and found a developing
embryo, so this is positive news.
