Subject : [Aroid-l] Re: titanum at ebay Germany

Dear Friends,

Contary to common belief and most literature, A. titanum can be made to and does produce offsets.
Craig Allen, who used to be at Fairchild Tropical Garden in Miami, and who was one of if not THE best A. titanum grower who I know of, reported the following on his cultivation methods for this species.
The artice appears in an older issue of 'Aroideana'. If you wanted a major increase in tuber size and possible blooming (and who does not dream of that!), you should use an over-sized potting container. By accident, Craig found that if you under-potted a tuber of A. titanum in too small a pot, the tuber would then grow in this constricted space, but oftentimes would split into several/many offsets.

Julius W.P.B.,

That first ebay plant is not a titanum, for sure. You can clearly see scars from where offsets were removed and titanum doesn't produce offsets. The tuber is so dirty I won't hazard an ID, but a dirty konjac could look like that.

A konjac or something else?

Some  titanum were offered around the time of the bloom of the triple
flower bud titanum in Bonn; some before the bloom in Bonn for 40 to 52
Euro and one after the bloom; that had some effect:


Good growing,
