The WIU Titan Siblings
The Botany Greenhouse has four Titan Arums in it’s collection. All were received from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2002. All four are shown in this picture., with the flowering one in the background along with two dormant corms, one potted and one not and then the smallest Titan in vegetated condition with not one leaf but two. I do not know why the small one is not the same size as the others but it just has never developed like it’s siblings. It is pretty cool though to have it in all three conditions, dormant, vegetative growth and flowering, at the same time for all to see.
