The official news, as of March 8th:
"Growing another 15cm overnight, our Titan Arum now towers over the other tropical plants from a height of 2m 15cm!! Still not quite ready to flower just yet. It is fast catching up to a Titan called 'Phyllis' that flowered at Cairns Botanic Gardens in 2014 -measuring 2.3m this (as far as we know) is the tallest ever recorded in Australia....for now. The Tropical Glasshouse is open today and tomorrow 10am-4pm." The RBGM pic that went with it:
My rather more unofficial update:
Titan Watch -- update, March 9th, 3pm: No fragrance; more visitors than previously (to be expected, Public Holiday here and all); no height measurement today, conservative guesstimate of 221cm; definite bulking up of the base; fringe of the spathe beginning to colour up nicely:
Couple of retrospective pics added to the album too, for posterity (and humour); My two bobs is on movement late Tuesday, full power fragrance and opening Wednesday; or maybe movement Wednesday, and nasal assault + visual feast on Thursday... well... we'll see!
