Ive had in my possession and sold over 70 of these titanium tubers. The person I got them from had over 3,000 plants. It was EGF Orchids. In fact they still have a few. So to say the least, those numbers are just slightly off :-)

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?
