The A. titanum at our local museum in Milwaukee is about to bloom.
An article in the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel stated :

While I realize they aren't selling these at K-Mart as yet, the figure of
140 seems rather low to me, at least when you add in all the smaller tubers
that seem to be available (at least for a price) as of late.
Is this truly an accurate guess as to the number of titanums in existence?
