What a magnificent plant! What are these things, buds or fruits? I have read the smell of the flowers is awful:) You so lucky to see this amazing creature.

Greetings, Inessa

Very late thanks, Petr and karol, late thanks, Sergey, and thanks, Inessa. We barely reached here in time to take a picture, but I'm glad I got this and glad you like it.

Inessa, I checked and each plant is either male or female. Both kinds have cones, and though the cones are different, I can't tell the difference seeing just the silhouette of these. Now you've made me curious!

Best wishes, Marilyn
