Re: [Aroid-l] Thoughts on GOOD SMELLING A. bulbifer
remind me of my first Amorphophallus bloom.
That early summer I woke up and I was irritated by a
smell that reminded me of a mixture of sewage plant and road kill. I
supsected the resaurant next to our house that they had forgotten about
their kitchen waste for the last weeks....
When I went downstairs my nose lead me to our
wintergarten where this stench was so strong that I stopped breathing
and I moved the blooming, I mean the albus in bloom, out immediately
Since that day I have a very close
eye on my albus growing inside.....
Happy sniffing ;-)
USDA zone 7
This morning I walked out on our porch and called to
Harry: "I smell gas!!" which is odd since we have electric
power. Then it smelled like road kill.... it was only after I read
Julius' email that it registered it was an Aroid blooming (albus).
