|I bought one of your titans from you on eBay Jude. The extra leaf was just feeding the same corm and eventually fell off. At one point in time, I had over 100 titans that I bought from EGF Orchids. It was like $50 for 10 of them. I waited for them to go dormant and sold the dormant corms and made a killing on them. I would start bidding at 99 cents and they would often got up to $70-$80. My best customers were from Europe but I digress. What Im getting at is out of those that had 2 leaves none of them had off sets. HOWEVER a few did end up having 2 corms growing in the same pot! The seeds in those cases grew to be twins was the explanation I was given as there was supposed to be only 1 seed per pot. My seeds were collected from a wild population in their native country. At the time I did it, It was just a money making venture so I sold them all.|

The question is, where did you get the tuber? I've read a lot of controversy about some sellers selling "fake" titanums. I get mine from Tindara Orchids which is a very reputable seller.
All of mine had multiple leaves, but have not dug them up yet - maybe I'll find some offsets too? Who knows!

Well here is some food for thought. I dug up one of my titanums that was going dormant to repot today and imagine my surprise when I found a second smaller tuber alongside the main one. It had a small second leaf all summer but I imagined it was just feeding the main tuber as I thought they did not divide or offset, but here we are. Now I pose this question. The seller I bought these from grows their stock from seed. Could some genetic diversity have actually created an offsetting titantum? I guess another growing season is in order to see if it holds this trait. Bye now.
