WIU Titan Family

In today's picture, you can see all four titans we have in the greenhouse. #1 and #3 bloomed last year (May and June). After blooming, #3 went through the expected routine of dormancy and then growing a leaf, which is now going dormant again. Titan #1 had a little problem after blooming. It initially started to send a leaf bud out but for some reason it aborted it and the bud subsequently died. What #1 is now doing is sending up sprouts from all around the corm. Titan #4 has not produced and inflorescence yet and may be due to the fact that it is a multiple also. This past year there were three leaves in the pot.
