Corpse Flower, Recalcitrant seeds, and species Concervation

Recommended Posts

Another good article to share.. While the title relates to that giant stinky wonder, whose flowering is often a media event, the article goes on to discuss the challenges of conserving plants whose seeds can't easily be stored, aka recalcitrant seeds.

Interesting article, thanks for posting it. I have an Amorphophallus titanum but it's still a fair way off from flowering. A friend of mine had one of his flower last year. I suspect there's a lot more of them grown privately than there are in botanic gardens.
