Hello Alex.  The A. titanum we purchased last year, viewed in person, had a
similar wimpy appearance; they were tissue cultured.  Healthy, strong
appearance one day and "permanently" dormant the next; that was
approximately 6 months later.  No bulb developed.  

It is stated yours was grown from a bulb, you have a gtreater chance at
success.  GOOD LUCK...Christian

Subject: [aroid-l] A. titanum on eBay

Hi!  I am very new to this list.  I noticed this item on eBay (per attached 
photo) and just read your recent thread about another such auction where the

plant was actually A. Konjac.  Is this another mistaken identity case or are

the plants in the picture too young to tell?  Hope it is right because I 
bought it!  I am not expert on amorphophallus.  Should I just grow it for 
six to ten years with my fingers crossed?  Any advice appreciated and thanks
