    It's been difficult to get on the site. Here's some links that were on the UCONN site to a funny pic:

    and other Titan's that had bloomed in the past:

    A few days ago they did a feature on the plant on NBC30 News (Connecticut) and also showed Matt Opel's watercolor Illustration full screen!!

    It still hasn't opened yet, they also made a new webpage that loads faster. I just saw a picture of Matt on the live webcam:

    I noticed the links at the bottom of the page...there is one for VA Tech. They have one and flowered it in 2002. Lots of nice photos on their website of it.

    This fower and the fact that it was about to bloom was on national tv. I sae it on 'countdown with keith oberman' also a subject on weather marujwana should be legalized, on the same show! weird.
    that makes no logic
