Re: Amorph. titanum at Huntington BG


I think they got their dormant tuber from Mark Dimmitt this last spring. It 
was not grown at the Huntington. It is not the first flowering outside, nor 
was it grown outdoors. Both of our plants were displayed outdoors (but grown 
in a greenhouse) and Fairchild had theirs on display in the Rare Plant House, 
which I believe has only shade cloth overhead, so Fairchild's was probably 
the first outdoor flowering in this country. However, it is all too easy to 
claim being the first at something and once the press gets hold of it, there 
is no way to correct the mistake.

 Last time I was at the Huntington, last December, I sought out aroids
 but wasn't able to find Amorphophalli.  I gather that the A. titanum 
 usually resides in a research greenhouse, off limits to the public?  
 Surely it doesn't sit in a columned courtyard most of the time.
