The Titan vigil continues as once again the inflorescence was reluctant to open. One of the approximately 100 visitors today was Bill Weaver, the grower of the Titan, Trudy, recently on display at UCBG. He has a different method of anticipating opening date. He says the best estimate is 2 weeks after bud sheaths first open to reveal an inflorescence. That date for our Titan was June 16, so we now anticipate opening Tuesday afternoon or evening. Bill had more info as well, advising that the odor will not be strong until the morning after opening. We will have another viewing this Tues., June 30 from 2 to 6 PM and are working to schedule both morning and afternoon viewings Wednesday from 10 AM to 1 PM, and from 2 PM to 6 PM. If anyone  receiving this message could help with this, please email me:

Also, I would like to receive a daily pic of the Titan to post here. If you have one from Sunday please send to above email.

Keep you fingers crossed for Tuesday evening!
