(Don't let Wilbert hear you say that) I am hoping to harvest the pollen. The tricky part is
telling when it is ready. It hasn't started to smell yet so I'm not sure it is mature yet.

Hi Bill,
Can you save some pollen in an envelope and keep dry and refrigerate? Some of us would like to try to make Amorphophallus hybrids.

Hi Bill, Please keep posting photos. I had to get rid of my  A.

gigas. It was just to big for my place. It is wonderful to see yours doing so well. I wish I could help you with the timeline, but mine did'nt get that far along. If you can also please post your description of the smell. I know that sounds weird, but I was always fascinated by how the different species can smell so different.
Thanks, Garland
