Title: Stopping the Stink
read this entry at the Cistus Nursery site at
Sauromatum venosum monarch of the east
Striking, tuberous Araceae, the spring flowers (spathe) mottled
in fleshy pink to metallic maroon and followed
by an attractive, single leaf on a 2-3 ft petiole. Stunning,
especially in flower. Very tropical. Also aromatic,
redolent of fly-attracting odors that can be mitigated by a
spray of water or left to work their own kind of
magic. Half sun and regular summer water.
recently been driven briefly out of the house by a blooming plant in
the basement, I wonder if this is true. Could I have simply sprayed
the inflorescence with water and eliminated the stink ?
have experience with this method?
