[Aroid-l] Good bulbifer, Bad bulbifer

Title: Good bulbifer, Bad bulbifer
I’m surprised no one found this quote from Deni Bown’s Aroids, Chapter 2, page 54:
            Sometimes even the same inflorescence presents contrasting scents.  One botanist discovered that, after cutting away the enveloping lower spath of a Biarum inflorescence, “the admittedly pungent aroma of the black terminal appendix turns unexpectedly into a sweet, gentle fragrance when the bolder nose investigates the more basal regions of the spadix” (Mayo 1980).
