The A. titanum at our local museum in Milwaukee is about to bloom.http://www.mpm.edu/exhibitions/featured/titan-arum/2010/
An article in the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel stated :
> The museum's corpse flower, which has never bloomed before, has its roots in
> Sumatra, and only about 140 of the plants are known to exist in the world,

While I realize they aren't selling these at K-Mart as yet, the figure
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?
