Just in time for the holidays, I’ve got my first Amorphophallus (don’t know the species) about to flower. So how bad is this going to stink?
I keep a few pots around because I love the foliage. Now I’m wondering if I’ll have the same love for the flower. Chances are good I’ll move it to the office Friday and let it ride out the putrid period while no one is around over the holidays.
Late blight. It hasn’t exploded yet this year in the Northeast. But it turned up in Maryland and Pennsylvania in May. Then in the last week or so in Connecticut and on Long Island. Keep an eye out for it (right), and keep disposing of those volunteer potatoes. More info on what you can do here.
