Titan Watch 8/31/99, made it to 6 foot
Titan watch: 72.25"
Amorphophallus titanum 931146A
.The inflorescence made it over 6' last night. The growth obviously hasn't
come to a stop as I had previously thought. There was little visual change
today in "Alice the Amorphophallus" as our Volunteer Coordinator has started
calling this plant. Since it has both sexes, she said "well it could be Alice
Cooper". Anyway it is better than the name "Mr. Stinky" that last years
flowering plant was tagged.
