First Titan Leaf
Back in November, I planted Titan Arum seeds (aka Amorphophallus titanum, aka “the botanical rockstar”). In December, the first one spiked. Now it’s about a foot tall and is unfurling its first leaf.
Shortly after I took this photo, I transplanted the young seedling into a slightly larger pot. It still lives in a plastic bag, under lights, on a heating mat, but it’s about to outgrow all three. Short of moving to moving to Sumatra or smuggling it into the Conservatory of Flowers, I’m not sure what I’ll do next.
- The Titan Family
It's been six months since I planted Betty's berries and I now have a small family of amorphophallus titanum.
- Two Titans
Of the eight Amorphophallus titanum seeds I planted, one rotted, two are growing, and the others are still somewhere in between.
- First Titan Spike
The first Titan Arum seed has broken ground.
