Dear Christopher,

Synandrospadix vermitoxus will produce a strange, non-offensive, sort of very weak spice/''chemical-like'' odor.  I`ll be interested in hearing what your perceptions of it are, as everyone seems to smell differently.

Good Luck and Good Growing.

Julius

Subject: Re: [Aroid-l] Spring STINKS!

A fortnight ago I had in bloom:

 

Three konjaks,

Two Helicodiceros muscivorus

4 Arum palestinum (both the foetid and the rotten fruit ecotypes)

6 Arum italicum

4 Arum dioscorides

 

On Easter morning I had around twenty Typhonium roxburghii in full glory.

 

Right now I am in anticipation of my very first Synandrospadix vermitoxus inflorescence. I have no idea about its odor, foul or fair.

 

I love spring.

Lucky you!!!

 

Of all mine in the ground, the only ones up so far are the Dracunculus vulgaris.  I must have one of the "wimpy sissy" clones.  It only smells faintly - kind of like a dead cat in the next-door to the next-door neighbor's yard.

Upon getting home from work yesterday afternoon, as soon as I opened the

car door, this awful putrid smell hit me......and I knew exactly what it was.

 

In the garden the following were in full bloom:

 

11 Amorphophallus konjac

1 Amorphophallus dunnii

9 Helicodiceros muscivorus

4 Dracunculus vulgaris

6 various Arum species

 

The scent of the tall bearded Iris never had a chance of being noticed -- Spring

STINKS!

 

Alan
