Re: Amorphophallus Titanum(?) Seedling ID and long storage time

Hi James,

judging from the photographs it could be titanum, but many Amorpophallus
look like that when the leaf is still in the cataphylls. However titanum
has green cataphylls without any pattern and in that respect the picture
fits titanum.
To be sure you have to wait till the 3rd or 4th true leaf when titanum
shows it's typical pattern on the petiole.

@ English native speakers/botanists: Is cataphyll the right term in
English for "Huellblatt"? Or does the term only describe covering leafs
over an "underground" bud?

Good growing,
