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.
