Re: Amorph. titanum at Huntington BG


According to spies at Caltech:

The predicted date of opening of the "flower" has been moved to tomorrow--
right now it is almost six feet tall.  Apparently, it has really begun to smell
raunchy which means that it is about to open (yeehaw!).  No word on
thermogenesis monitoring by infrared spacecraft instrumentation.

 Amorphophallus titanum hotline: 1-800-200-5566.

Clear skies,
Al
