Re: Initiation of Flowering in Amorphophallus

Dear Tom,

after the critical comments of our fellow aroiders regarding GA-treatment, I do certailly understand that you do not want to fool around with your titanum, I would not either. And I am very well aware that growth regulator treatments are a delicate thing and that the results are not predictable without a wider range of experiments (concentration of the GR, "physiological" status of the plant, etc.)


So, you have to stick to:

Happy feeding and watering and wishing success,

Dear Bernard:

Thanks so much for your comments.  Some have said that it caused serious distortion of the inflorescences so I am a bit reluctant.  I would hate to have waited so long to get flowers then have to deal with a freak!
