Watch out for flocks of vultures circling over your home, hoards of large
flesh-flies enveloping your entire green-house, and crowds of caped and
hooded neighbors with torches, clubs and pitch-forks screaming at and
beating down your door! :--)
Keep us informed of YOUR impressions of this weed-of-satans smell!!
Way back in Jan 1997, Rob McClure ( I believe)donated and
with the help of Mary Sizemore ?? arranged for a distribution of
small tubers of Helicodiceros musciverous. My old mail shows delivery
went to 15 in the US and a few more in other countries.
Last year I prompted some email as I unpotted my plant and
sent out a few small tubers. I repotted the biggest and kept it frost
free in a greenhouse.
I am expecting bloom for the first time. The very strangely
shaped 'bent-horn' of the tightly rolled spathe is emerging and about
8 inches long on top of the foliage.
Should I invite or warn my neighbors?
Also curious if any of the other 15++ have had bloom or the
others? Is mine the first to pop?
