MAGNUS, OUR SECOND TITAN ARUM FLOWER
The largest of our three new titan arum corms has a bud that emerged from the soil on May 4, 2015. This corm weighed approximately 34 kg when it arrived at the greenhouse. On May 8, the bud was 17.8 cm high and 22.9 cm in circumference.
It’s a flower bud! On May 18th, the bud was 76.2 cm tall. The flower bud is growing 12.7 cm per day and was 1.09 metres on May 21st. On May 29th, the flower bud was 1.83 metres tall, growing at a rate of 5.08 cm per day. That’s 6 feet! The flower has stopped growing. This means that the flower will bloom in a few days. The flower bloomed on May 31st, 2015 and was named Magnus.
