  Re: [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus Titanum offset?

Jason,  This is not that unusual as you will likely here from others here.  Mine have done it multiple times, in fact one of mine has 2 extra leaves at the side of the main growth now that just went dormant so unless momma consumes them if they are still attached I will have 3 rather than 1 when I unpot.  Good luck with yours,

Subject: [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus Titanum offset?

Well here is some food for thought. I dug up one of my titanums that was going dormant to repot today and imagine my surprise when I found a second smaller tuber alongside the main one. It had a small second leaf all summer but I imagined it was just feeding the main tuber as I thought they did not divide or offset, but here we are.  Now I pose this question. The seller I bought these from grows their stock from seed. Could some genetic diversity have actually created an offsetting titantum? I guess another growing season is in order to see if it holds this trait.  Bye now.
