The only problem with this is that it seems that most do not enjoy the
olfactory delights of Amorphophallus <grin>. Maybe the decide that as the
flower stinks then they have to try the sucking instead.
My largest Amorphophallus konjac has now gone dormant and is the size of a
large apple now. Here's hoping that I get to enjoy some of those olfactory
delights in Spring!!!!
