I directed a guy on another forum to you that is interested in Titan Arums, I 
explained you charge per size.  He's very interested!  I hope that was okay?

We have our 15 yr old plants in a variety of pots. We have not been encouraging 
full growth because of space constraints and I was frankly caught by surprise 
when this latest 'little' one bloomed. It defies the conventional wisdom that 
corms need to reach 30lbs. Many places that use injection fertilization are 
producing much larger plants, although not necessarily blooming. Also, like most 
geophytes that I have played with, once you start treating them nicer, they 
respond and grow; i.e., stunting is not permanent.
