A titan is also ready to bloom at the UC Botanical Garden in Berkeley. This
one has an interesting history. It come from Symon's mid-90's seed
collection in Sumatra. It was raised nearby by Bill Weaver who named it
Trudy,  and was among the first to bloom in the Bay Area, in 2005. The
current  bloom is 'her' 4th  (2005-2009-2012-2015). Pollen from the first
bloom was used on a second plant that bloomed here in 2007; these are the
tubers we now offer for sale (one has already bloomed).

If you are in the area to see it, I'm updating it's condition on our
facebook (https://www.facebook.com/UCBotanicalGarden/).  I'm predicting that
it will open later this week (but bear in mind that my predictions have
been off for the previous 8 blooms we've had).
