    Mistltoe (viscum) is a parcitic plant - and it can be grown in its most minute form on some euphorbias hosting Viscum minimum. These were available from the Huntindon botanic gardens i think. I'm not sure if my plants will produce seed this year - but I'm hopeful.

    Best regards

    Chris

    Great shots Larry!
    Any idea what the bulb weighed or what it's diameter was when it bloomed? I see this is not as huge as they can get (younger bulb I assume) but a nice houseplant size!

    Don't know how much it weighed. I did see the unpotted bulb, couldn't of been more than 18" in diameter.

    Thanks Larry! 18" is still a pretty massive bulb! I recently planted a huge bulb of Arisaema griffithii var. Pradhanii (about 7-8" across) but it seems to be stalled, have you got any experience with this one? Any idea on if it needs heat or cool to fully break dormancy?

    Hey that's great BigCPK! One thing I would like to know is how do you grow yours when they're taller so they stand upright? My other amorphos (which appear roughly the size as yours) bend towards the light. My smaller ones fit under lights and grow straight but I hate the bendy snake shaped stems!

    edit-I just saw the stick in your pot! Does this keep them straight with a 45* angled light source?

    Well, I'll be da**ed. I guess you can;t take a professors word for everything now can you? I asked about it being a fungus since thats what I heard it was, and she told me it was an epiphyte like orchids, she knew I was into orchids. Now it turns out it is parasitic, or atleast partialy in most species, and totaly in some. Interesting. My appologies to everyone who I said it was not parasitic too. I just went and looked it up myself LOL.

    Now tothe subject of the Amorphophallus titanum. I would love to get ahold of one of these plants and flower it, but my por little greenhouse couldn;t accomidate a full grown plant, and why grow a plant that once it gets adult size you couldn't care for it? GL to those that are trying though. Maybe one day I will have a GH big enough! It is an awsome plant though.
