Re: Zack/A. titanum.

Again, I enjoyed hearing the story of this valiant effort by a private individual, Dr. Symon. That Amorphophallus titanum collection has enriched the educational outreach at Fairchild Tropical Garden. That's a fancy way of saying it has helped the Garden get attention when these giants bloomed here at Fairchild in 1998 and 1999. These plants have stimulated the curiosity of many people that had formerly shown no interest in the conservation of rare and endangered plant species. Jim Symon's Titans have been very good for botanical gardens, here and elsewhere. Craig

Dear Zack,
I thought you may be interested in a few facts and items that may interest you concerning one of the species of Amorphophallus that you mention you grow a plant of, and the reason that 'plain folks' like you and I have the opportunity to actually own a plant of this real marvel, a miracle of the plant kingdom.
