Nice find! That was a new one to me, I have never seen one of those before. What zone are you in? Is it hardy or do you have to keep it inside for winter? :biggrin:
Do you grow others? We are about to start a new game for someone to win a plant of the A. Konjac soon , hope you'll hang around and play. Games are always free and fun so join in, we'd love to have you. Thumbs up

*Blush* You're welcome, Dana! And OH PLEASE!!!! Jan. LOL Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

If you knew how many of these I've killed! I love the patterns on them and the knee, my plant friends in Miami area consider it a terrible pest, a weed! And yet when I used to go to the Aroid show and sale every year I'd buy these and take them home to WI and kill them the following year. A friend in Iowa never had any luck with them, either.

I do have a green form that I got a year or so ago, it is doing very well. But I like the spotted/striped one better.

I'll look for some photos.

This one was growing from underneath the tables at Ree Gardens, grew up through the mesh. I don't know what the Amorphophallus are.

Unlike the Amorphophallus, they bloom at the same time they have leaves.

Hello there I am a new member and was wondering if some one can give me a name for this variety of Amorphophallus,I have been searching everywhere but don't seem to be able to identify it, any help would be greatly appreciated indeed. This plant is growing out in the open in a garden bed....We have very cold winters with heavy frosts and our summers are quite warm to hot..(Southern Tablelands NSW Australia).I thought most Amorphophallus were tropical to sub tropical so this plant might be from another genius altogether...Thank you in advance for any help or answers.
kind regards

Amorphophallus titanum (Araceae), also called "cadaverous flower"
Has the peculiarity of blooming only during three (3) days every 40 years.
“Do you suppose God gave us a flower that represents the 40 years in the desert”.
"And it only blooms for 3 days - the length of time Jesus died and rose."

I'm still interested in these plants, but only in the science and horticulture.

A. titanum has been bloomed from seed to flower in less than ten years by several parties now. Individual flowers may last from three to six days. Most corpses I've encountered don't smell that bad after three days. Six days, now that's where it is getting near to the A titanum ballpark...
