Presentation by Matt Coulter

Adelaide Botanic Gardens Mt Lofty nursery, plant propagator.

Matt's talk was on the Amorphophallus titanum (commonly known as the "Corpse Flower").

Rather than try to write about Matt's fascinating address, we've accessed a number of excellent short videos that he and the Botanic Gardens have produced. In this way you'll be able to see what we saw on the night.

Introduction and time lapse of first
blooming in Adelaide (2 minute 07 seconds)

Propagation of the plant using the "
vertical method" (1 minute 35 secs)

Propagation using the
horizontal method. This method can produce many more new plants than the vertical method.
