Here's a link for our largest Amorphophallus titanum
(Perry/Hyperion), located at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter,
Minnesota.  It started to grow in late May, and the shoot looks like
an inflorescence to me (rather than a leaf), due to its puffy appearance.

I would appreciate some opinions on this from list
members.  Predictions of the probable time of opening would be
useful, as well.  Right now, I'm thinking that perhaps it will be
late July or early August.

We're on the way to setting up for public visitation, and are
planning have a streaming webcam and other facilities.

The link below contains links to the current webcam (the image is
renewed every five minutes, if I remember correctly) photos, and
posts on the history of the plant, which first flowered in May 2007.
