Amorphophallus update, Fairchild Tropical Garden

A. gigas (#84) = 114", spathe starting to curl back, expected to open by

Amorphophallus yunnanensis (#2317) in bloom
Amorphophallus henryi (#2736) a second one was in bloom when I came in this
morning, 2 more to go.
Amorphophallus paeoniifolius (#2741) about to bloom
Amorphophallus paeoniifolius (#2318) about to bloom
Amorphophallus muellerii (#2743) about to bloom

A number of the pseudodracontiums are beginning to emerge from dormancy.
They often produce leaves right along with the inflorescence.

Titan Watch: Amorphophallus titanum (#83) = 9" tall and very fat growth
above the soil surface. Still don't know if it is an inflorescence or not.
