  Re: Propagation Amorphophallus titanum
From: SelbyHort at aol.com on 2000.07.07 at 02:39:52(4996)
I just discovered the mistake I made about the NYBG having the world's
largest recorded Amorphophallus titanum inflorescence in cultivation. This
record is actually held by from Wageningen (Netherlands) flowering of 1932
(2.67 m). Kebun Raya Bogor (Indonesia) had a flowering in 1924 that reached
2.61 m. The New York Botanical Garden flowering of 1937 actually was 8 feet 5
inches (101 inches) or 2.56 m. This means the recent Bonn flowering of 2.57
meters is the third largest ever recorded in cultivation. Must be a splendid
thing to see!

If you go to the IAS web site and check out the web links, clicking the Bonn
link for their 1996 flowering you will find information and images of their
newest event.
