Amorphophallus titanum pollen

I don't have any titanum pollen but I have some other species about to bloom including,
An unknown species from Thailand
and others just can't remember off the top of my head.

Is a hybrid out of the question?

But then the question is, why would it be called by a word that means "to begin"?
As I think I may have suggested last time we had this conversation, I wonder if the Arawak name for this plant was something that sounded similar, and early colonists adopted the name without changing it? We have other examples of plant names where this has occurred, such as sarsaparilla and sassafras in North America.

So, in conclusion, it appears no one can answer my original question.

Thanks Marek. Allowing for changes in pronunciation over time and place, ?siggin? is still remarkably similar to ?seggin?. (I write these as an Anglophone would pronounce them.)

We here at Missouri Botanical Garden are expecting an Amorphophallus titanum to bloom in the weeks/ days to come.  I am also asking for pollen please contact me at Emily.colletti@mobot<mailto:Emily.colletti@mobot> .org if you have some of this precious commodity.

Ever so grateful.

Hello fellow aroid lovers,

You may recall that the Houston Museum of Natural Science had an Amorphophallus titanum bloom in 2010.  This year a Houston resident who has a plant in his orchid greenhouse is "loaning" it to us while it is in the blooming phase.  We have installed it in the Butterfly Center and expect it to generate a lot of excitement.  The owner is keen to have us try to pollinate his plant when the time comes.  So - we are looking for viable pollen.  Perhaps some of you have frozen pollen that you would exchange for some of the seeds, if the pollination takes?  We would be very grateful!  Unfortunately the timing with the corpse plant at nearby Moody Gardens was just a little off; their plant has already collapsed.  So we are seeking a stud from farther afield.

Please let me know if any of  you have pollen of Amorphophallus titanum that we could use to attempt to pollinate this plant!  I think ours will open sometime mid next week.  We will of course pay for shipping, etc.  Please contact me via email (ngreig@hmns.org<mailto:ngreig@hmns.org>) rather than phone; it is much easier to get hold of me that way!

Thank you so much!
