For a limited time only....

And mostly, because I've been working on it so long that it needs airing out.

[time's up.]

Ooooh, I LOVE it!

And I actually had one of those plants once. It never flowered; I named it Morticia.

New thought: Are you writing poems as animals? A Gazelle? If you come up with something inspired by the MAP, please let me know!

"Amorphophallus" is easily the most fantastic nomenclatorial term I have ever encountered. VERY suitable for a Renaissance city comedy.

favorite: ", and swoon /", with its ambiguous syntax and half-rhyme. Nom.

I hope this isn't for a limited time only, because I think it's fantastic!

Here's a video of a bloom:

Squad: I'm so impressed, and so not surprised, to hear that you owned one. Though I wonder where you had space to keep it.

Wow-- that's beautiful!

They actually can fit in a large, 15-gallon pot. In the non-flowering phase, they have a single, purple-spotted, succulent stem that reaches up and then branches into four parts, with an umbrella-like canopy attached. It was quite attractive; I had it in my living room.

Tease.

Well, I read this when it was still up . . . and tried to compose a witty comment that said, when reduced to its essence, "Wow." So: Wow.
