    Do you know the general size that the bulb has to be before it flowers? The one I ordered has a 1" bulb...

    I think they'll be six inches tall from that size, with leaves but no flowers. I'm not sure how big or old they have to be for first flowers though. Mine are just spikes coming out.

    How many inches do the bulbs put on a year, if you've had yours long enough to know?

    If you find you develop a "taste" for such things, I should send you a cutting of Stapelia gigantea. Not only does it look like the petals are made from decomposing Rabbit hide, it smells like it too. Delightfully fragrant on a warm morning, especially if you position it where the sun can warm the blooms. Mmmmmm.....

    (Each of these flowers is nearly a foot in diameter, by the way)

    Thanks! I'll let you know if I decide to take you up on that offer later on. Not into those kinds of things right now, but I may get more and more into it after I see how my Amorphophallus does.

    What did you just say?

    I am also trying to grow arums but I chose to start with a smaller flowered species first.
