I advise all growers of Amorphophallus titanum and the other giant species
to get and read the article in a back-issue of Aroideana by Craig Alen, THE
master grower of these plants at Fairchild Tropical Gardens in Miami,
Florida. From memory I think he describes how when grown in smaller pots
the plant puts its energy into dividing into many smaller tubers, and when
given LOTS of pot space it then puts its energies into tuber size and this
eventually results in it blooming. Marc earlier today reported about two
species of his giants that have produced off-sets.
