Hi all. I checked on the Titan today and was excited to see some color starting to flush. It is being measured daily. The measurment for Monday was 5 feet 8.2 and todays measurment was just over 6 feet. We had thought it would bloom by Friday May 2nd. It should now bloom>>>>we think by Wednesday May 7th. If it continues to grow tomorrow it may even be later. As I have been told it will slow it's upward growth before it blooms. Photo on the bottom is from Friday April 25th. And the top photo is from today April 29th. Keep checking back to see it bloom.
