Re: [aroid-l] Amorphophallus

When I had a bulbifer bloom this year the smell was very variable depending on the time of day. Some times it smelled pretty bad and other times it had sort of a sweet smell. It was sort of strange.

At 02:52 PM 7/31/2003 +0200, you wrote:

The bloom is not unlike that of bulbifer, even to the point of having a
pinkish interior (and sometimes exterior, see the IAS website!!!) but a more
distinct constriction between base and limb. The smell is as horrid as
bulbifer and those who think it is "good smelling" probably originate from
Uranus................(no pun intended..........I think....).
