Our Amorphophallus titanum, Peter Grande, continues to expand, hitting the 76″ tall mark today. This ties it for the 30th tallest flower (inflorescence) recorded in US history. Flower opening, which starts between 3 and 4pm, could begin any day now…stay tuned! Plantsman Alan Galloway, one of the worlds’ leading authorities on the genus Amorphophallus will also be on hand for the grand opening to chat about anything amorphophallus.
It is STUPENDOUS!
I look forward to seeing this!
Congrats! Has it started warming up (generating heat)?
No heat generation yet…that begins as it starts to open to volatilize the odor makers.
