Dear Kathy and All,

Kathy, hello!   Good to hear your ''voice again!
I thought I had a memory of the small, dwarfed and somewhat deformed bloom, and thought it was the first blooming of Jim`s seed.  Believe it or not, I do NOT recall what you and Susan report as the earlier blooming, the one in the photo with you kindly posted by Susan!
This information really is for Margret, the grower of the present tiny bloom under discussion, as she just might be interested in the sequence of the earlier bloomings, most from Jim Symon`s seeds!   He would have been so very thrilled.   He really made a BIG difference in the general public`s perception and interest in ALL plants.   A great contribution which benifited all of us.


>>> 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!

> PS.  Dr. Mo at University of Wisconsin- Madison has details on all the bloomings, I haven't seen him in a few years so I don't know if he is keeping up with them still. (English teachers please ignore that sentence!!)
