Re: titanum blooms

Congrats!!!!!!! Just an Idea, but why don`t you try to link up w/ Craig
at Fairchild, you could collect pollen (he could advise on freezing or
cooling it, etc.) and get it to Craig and MAYBE we could get
pollenation/seed on his 'Mr. Stinky'!! Is this the second of THIS year??
If it is and you had kept pollen from the first, you could try pollenating
this second one!!
>>Today at 4pm our second Amorphophallus titanum has started opening. Ht. is|
5'4" ( 163cm ). already 7pm, the spathe is widely open, and the stench is
building in the room. I am doing a much lower-key media announcement this
go-around, but am open for visitors the next several days. This one is
much more open, and has more striking coloration. Will try to keep you
