Fascinating! I had heard of these plants but have never seen one in a natural setting. Your video is a smashing success, and the narration is excellent. I particularly enjoyed the part where you took the plant's temperature with your finger. Did it smell terrible even at this time of the year?
Thanks for your comments! I didn't notice any smell - but then I didn't stick my nose right up into it!
This is a fascinating plant, and I can truly say I knew nothing about it. I do think it needs a name change or a marketing plan to make it more appealing to the gardening masses. Perhaps the DNA sequence that gives it the thermogenic properties could be spliced into something else and solve our energy crisis.
Why not just splice the genes into ourselves and then we won't need heaters any more?
So much fun to walk around "in search of" skunk cabbage. Good show! Nice info.
You did a great job with the video, and although I have heard of these and seen pics, I've never "met" one in real life. I can't get behind the gene splicing idea, though- I have enough social impediments without smelling like a skunk cabbage!
Very informative - I enjoyed it!
Great video Phillip. You really should try to grow one.
