Re: gigantic leaf species around the wor

Julius, no.  The shot of D. Attenborough with "giant arum" is 
definitely NOT that of an Amorphophallus.  He *does* go to Sumatra
in the docu and waits for a day or two while Amorphophallus titanum
opens and he may have, indeed, referred to it as a "giant arum,"
but he also gives its correct binomial.  The sequence I was referring 
to shows something more akin to an Alocasia or Xanthosoma.
