Here's a link for our largest Amorphophallus titanum
(Perry/Hyperion), located at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter,
Minnesota. It started to grow in late May, and the shoot looks like
an inflorescence to me (rather than a leaf), due to its puffy
I would appreciate some opinions on this from list members.
Predictions of the probable time of opening would be useful, as
well. Right now, I'm thinking that perhaps it will be late July or
We're on the way to setting up for public visitation, and are planning
have a streaming webcam and other facilities.
This link contains links to the current webcam (the image is renewed
every five minutes, if I remember correctly) photos, and posts on the
history of the plant, which first flowered in May 2007.
