Titan Watch @ Fairchild Garden 8/30/99
Titan watch: 70"
Amorphophallus titanum 931146A
.The Titan has just about quit growing, only 1/2 inch gain since yesterday.
If last years pattern holds true, the inflorescence should stop growing for
several days and then open quickly. We are revising our time estimate. The
opening could occur as early as Wednesday or as late as Friday. Of course this
is just a best guess, there isn't enough experience to be sure. Everyone needs
to get their nose in good sniffing condition.
