  • Thread-topic: [aroid-l] Titanum at National Botanic Garden, Washinton, D.C.

The first A. titanum 'Mr. Stinky' that bloomed at Fairchild Tropical Garden was only 5 years old the first time it bloomed. The second 'Alice the Amorphophallus' was 6 years old. The last to bloom was 'Audrey lll' and it was 10 years old at first bloom. That of course was grown in Miami's almost tropical weather with lots of fertilizer. One common factor was that each had a tuber over 30 pounds when they first bloomed.

Atlanta Botanical Garden and Marie Selby Botanical Garden (Sarasota, Fl.) bloomed plants at 5 and 6 years old from seed. All 3 gardens had plants from the same Wilbert Hetterscheid/Dr James Symon seed collection.
