Amorph titanum at Kew

Hi everyone,
I just came back from chatting with the guys at the Botanic Gardens Kew and 
there is a second Amorph titanum about to flower! Very exciting for them 
since they have only ever had one in any  year. This is a smaller tuber than 
the previous so the flower is smaller also. Having looked at the flower bud I 
would predict sometime  next week for flower opening. For those who missed 
the first one I have put a photo I took on: 
http://members.aol.com/Geoffaroid/titanum.jpg     please note the capital G 
in Geoffaroid, its very important, http sites are case sensitive!

They are still looking for pollen to cross pollinate (they never did get any 
for the first flower so tried self pollination but its not looking good.....) 
so if anyone has any they can spare please send it a.s.a.p. I can pass it on 
to them since I go into Kew to do some research twice a week, my address is 

By the way, I have not received any posting from aroid-L in about 3-4 days, 
is the server down or is it just a slack period? Do let me know if you get 
this and there is anyone out there - I feel kinda lonely over here in London 
without hearing from you guys!

Best wishes,
Geoffrey Kibby
