We were excited to learn this past weekend that one of the *Arum
titanum *tubers
produced by our spring, 2008 seed crop bloomed in a greenhouse in Berkeley
(see images on We have not
pushed the growth of our tuber supply because of space constraints but
these plants are clearly able to bloom at an a relatively young age if
pampered. The young bloom only reached 4 ft but had a good strong odor.

Those of you who recently got a tuber from us now really have something to
look forward to.
