I had to chronicle an update on the split leaf philodendron blossom. It looks like it’s devolving. This is definitely one of the most unique occurrences in the garden in a long, long time.
Here’s 24 hours worth of photos:
The tip of this hooded thing has curled up like a loofa and the scent has subsided.
I’ve had this plant for years. I mean years. When the backyard was remodeled, it was dug up and eventually potted into a gigantic ceramic pot. The pot is so big and heavy that it’s pretty much where it’s going to stay. I wonder if transplanting this beast trigger the blossom a year after the fact. Don’t know. It’s certainly interesting to watch.
A comment was left on yesterday’s post linking to facts of this fruit. It is edible; but I’m not touching it. Especially since it can be poisonous if it’s not ripe enough. I’ll just enjoy watching the evolution.
