Re: St. Paul tiny titan
nice to read that your tiny titan is fine (and I hope you as well) .
Two more questions:
Could you decribe the odor that maybe woke you up?
( I am still terrified when I think of my first albus flowering in my
wintergarden. A mixture of sewage and rendering.Now they are only
allowed to flower outside....)
The people in the Botanical Garden in Bonn, Germany mentioned that
titanum is not that bad and has a sort of fishy odor (but I forgot to
ask how old that fish was....).
What is the size of the tuber and leaf after ten years now?

Hi,Yes, I'm here! The tuber that bloomed when it was 3 years old hasn't
bloomed again, but is healthy. A sibling from the same seed batch
bloomed in 2001, both at University of Missouri-St.Louis, (although
Julius is correct remembering how I took the little one home one evening
so I wouldn't miss it opening, not wanting to spend the night at work.
And it really sent its odor throughout my whole house at 3 AM! ). Since
then there have been only leaves produced, proving how unpredictable the
species can be. Would it be quite as unique and interesting if it
bloomed like clockwork?! Jim Symon, if only you could be around now
to see all the fun and excitement you created! -Kathy Upton
