Last Titan Viewing Monday

July 5, 2009

July 5, 2009

The inflorescence had not completely closed by 9 PM Sunday, but the remaining odor was slight. I jumped the gun last post in stating that the male flowers were releasing pollen, but they will be doing so soon. Over the next week the inflorescence will slowly decline, the spadix collapse, and then the entire structure slump over. We will be keeping our overhead camera going through this process as well. Stay tuned for the time lapse footage to come later. There will be a last viewing (wake?) Monday afternoon, July 6, 2-6 PM. Come say goodbye to the Titan. Thanks to Sergei Zavarin for the pic below taken at 10 AM today with the Titan early in it’s closing process.
