Remember guys, Amorphophallus` are SUPPOSED to stink, if someone does not
'like' this aspect of 'our' plants, then grow roses and violets! As an
old cook on an oil drilling platform once told me when I nearly choked to
death on a tiny sliver of his extra-hot chilis, and screamed at him--'Damn,
man, this thing is HOT!!!', he then politely replied-- 'man, peppers are
SUPPOSED to be hot, if you want something cool, then eat ice cream!'
GREAT job, Craig, once more congrats, and THANK YOU JIM SYMON!!!
>>It is about 1/3 open and beginning to release the smell that it's famous
for. It is so beautiful, but when a staff persons family was in about 7:30
PM, the kids were grossed out. I won't tell you what they thought it smelled
