    Amorphophallus plants are very interesting. How long have you had them?
    Also a guess at reason 3 for that particular iris: It catches insects after filling with water?

    Your id on the Datura is incorrect Hawken. Stramonium is a a common native around here, and has much smaller purple flowers. Yours is likely D. meteloides, aka D. inoxia.

    Knuckles: not quite. It might make it clearer if I mention it's related to my profile pic...

    SubRosa: You're probably right. I've never gotten an actual ID of the species, and that name is the one most commonly through out for the native Angel trumpets....I've fixed the name on flickr.

    Don't mean to derail your thread Hawken, but I happened upon a Datura stramonium today. Note the much smaller flowers:

    Nice pics all, Hcarlton!

    Andddd... I'm just throwing this out, but I've noticed you have the movies rendering of Toothless from How to Train your Dragon in your profile picture. The Bewilderbeast is, according to Valka in the second movie, the king of the dragons or whatever. So, again this is very convoluted, I'm guessing that's why you like the iris, as its name is "Bewilderbeast".

    I too am a fan of variegated Irises.

    Katy, you are correct!
    Yes, I'm a HTTYD nut, so the iris' name immediately caught my attention. The picture on the tag further did me in....

    What kind of light are you giving your amorphophallus?

    I just realized I never answered: Knuckles, I've only had the aroids since early this year.

    Dragoness: depends on the plant. The Typhonium gets a few hours of direct sun from an east window, the A. yuloensis and smaller symonianus get light from a 2 foot T8 shoplight (that probably needs a new bulb if I had the money to spare...), and the rest just get kind of whatever ambient light they receive from sitting next to the greenhouses or in various parts of the house. They aren't exactly "high light" plants, far as I can tell at least since they're all growing and both the yuloensis and larger symonianus have/are producing adventitious bulbs..
