Re: [aroid-l] Amorphophallus

Dear Lord P.,
I must then ask this question----is there perhaps a var. or clone of A. bulbifer that produces a pleasant smelling bloom??? I know that Charile, here in WPB, used to or still grows plants that look to all intents and purposes like A. bulbifer, but produce a VERY beautiful flask-like bloom, peach/orange colored, and it emits a GOOD smell! He had one in bloom for sale at a plant show at our local Bot. Garden about two or three years ago. I shall discuss this matter w/ Charlie, and perhaps try to obtain a plant!
>>The bloom is not unlike that of bulbifer, even to the point of having a|
pinkish interior (and sometimes exterior, see the IAS website!!!) but a more
distinct constriction between base and limb. The smell is as horrid as
bulbifer and those who think it is "good smelling" probably originate from
Uranus................(no pun intended..........I think....).
