  Re: [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus Titanum offset?
From: Brian O'Brien <bobrien at gustavus.edu> on 2011.01.26 at 17:11:38
At least two of our titanums have split into two corms - one that we still have and one that we donated to the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory in St. Paul, Minnesota.  These plants are all grown from seeds from the original Symon collection.

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.
