I got one seed in 2004. It was a juvenile plant
I'd like to know the name of this species.
I got it as A. giganteus but does such name exist?
|The seed didn't put any leaf in 2004. |
The grid is 0.5 cm.
|It germinated in May 2005||The first leaf was about 6 cm (2.5'') long|
|The underground part after the first season.||The leaf was a little larger but still not divided.|
|The first tripartite leaf it put in May 2007. |
|My lovely kitty ate the first leaf, so the plant produced a second one in the middle of July. It was 24 cm (~10'') tall and 15 cm (6 '') long.|
|The center of the leaf.||The petiole.|
|The tuber was 2 cm in diameter (2008-02-24)||It started to grow on 2008-04-15|
|2008-05-02 - the leaf was still unfolding.|
|2008-05-25. The leaf fully unfolded. It was 38 cm tall.|
|Details of the leaf.|
|The dead (dried) tuber in winter of 2009, it was 35 mm in diameter.|
|My plant died in 2009, below there are additional photos of a plant grown from the same seeds,|
which also died without blooming.
