Thumbs up Re: Amorphophallus titanum

Is this your plant, in your greenhouse? I am SO excited for you! Those things take a long time to get to blooming size. I bet you're wishing you had a setup for a good time lapse video. I would love to watch the footage. Updates, please!

Here’s a video of me saying nonsense and students smelling it.

Great video! Very cool, good work.
The specimen at the Denver Botanic Gardens just bloomed a month or so ago. I guess it attracted quite a crowd. I skipped it on the recommendations of the staff. Just because of the mob. They also told me the smell is only present for 10 hours or so. I don't know if that's correct, but i have no reason to doubt the folks who grew it.
The pictures had no noticeable odor.

That odor was so powerful. All five floors, basement and a 20’ radius from the building were effected. The physics department was especially not impressed. At least chem and bio students have an appreciation of smelly things.

The odoriferous smell is probably 10 hours. It’s a function of female flowers trying to attract pollinators. After that, the stigma goes non receptive and the male flowers up. By staging the flowers in these phases it avoids self pollination.
