Subject: [Aroid-l] RIP my Titanums
|Hi all, |
About 5 years ago I bought 3 Amorph
Titanum seeds from someone on this list (whose name I can no longer
I reported to you a few weeks ago that one of my bulbs had
started to rot from the eye
, and did anyone know any survival
Well, eventually the whole thing rotted and was useless.
Now My other 2 bulbs have started to follow suit, It looks like the
central bud has died off on these too, but its dry and only one of them
looks like it had started to go bad. However on the bottom of these Ive
had to cut away about the lower half of both of them, as they had
started to rot from the bottom. They are now sitting out letting the cut
They had all been sitting dormant for the last 3 -
5 months in soil which was not wet, maybe too dry, I hadnt watered the
pots since dormancy, in fact Ive kept these in exactly the same
conditions (I will admid here, not ideal) since I germinated them back
in August 2004 and not had one single problem with them.
several questions at this point.
Firstly, can anyone remember who
it was that was selling them? And if anyone else still on the list
bought some, how did your plants fare?
Secondly, does anyone know
how these plants cope with the loss of the eye stalk, are they known to
produce replacement stems in adverse conditions.
Im a bit
dissapointed that after 5 years, and growing these beauties from seed to
over 5 inch tubers, all 3 of them decided to go belly up within a few
Looking at the price of some of the A Titanum tubers
that went on ebay recently, I wont be able to replace them any time soon
