[Aroid-l] Titanic Miracle in the Making

Oh Ye Phallic Phreaques!!

In the botanical garden of Bonn (Germany) a tuber of Amorphophallus titanum
was raised last year that weighs 117 kilo (that's quite some stones, lbs and
whatnot). This largest of all titans ever is now producing THREE buds and
already TWO are certain inflorescences!!! This was never seen before. And
who knows, maybe the third bud is an inflorescence too. 

Site of the garden: http://botgart.uni-bonn.de/index.html but in german. Yet
there is a link to a webcam. 

Enjoy and all you lovers of climbing aroids: CONVERT while you still
