Since we have sold 672 A. titanums since 2000, I'd say the number is
slightly low....unless they know that 532 of them have died.

> An article in the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel stated :
>> The museum's corpse flower, which has never bloomed before, has its

>> world,
>> according to Neil Luebke, curator of botany at the museum and the stinky
>> plant's guardian.
> While I realize they aren't selling these at K-Mart as yet, the figure of

> 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?
