FW: Titan blooming this week

Our friends at UNC-Charlotte have their Amorphophallus titanum flowering
again, although it sounds like an Austin Powers mini-me version of the one
that flowered a couple of years ago.  They are looking for pollen for a
conjugal visit, if anyone can help, see Meredith's note and contact info
below.  Thanks.

We have a tart of a titan, she's blooming again after only three years (two
leaves).  The bloom will be smaller, about 40" compared to about 59" last
time. We'd like to try to fertilize it, any chance you know someone with
extra pollen just hanging around waiting to be used?!  We do have some of
the pollen from the last bloom still frozen, but hear that self pollinating
won't work well, if at all....  opinions or suggestions welcome.
