    This also makes a giant flower (smaller than the titanum). A.konjac flower is about 6 ft tall, and it looks very similar to titanum.

    The plant is a very nice plant to grow even without the flower. It's very tree-like but it has a fleshy spotted stem. It looks like it has alot of leaves but from each branch there is only one single inter-connected leaf.

    It goes dormant in winter. The whole plant just dies and you can pull the the plants away from the bulb. You dig the bulb up and put it in a bucket until spring. It's very easy to grow.
    This plant is also used to make flour in Japan. It's alos used to make a jelly candy. It also has medical uses. It is made into a pill that lowers appitite and controls blood sugar levels. It's also used for burns.

    Cool, so what do you want as a trade. I have several species of the more common sarrs including one with a red top. Also have some lowland and highland neps. I'll make you a list later if you are interested.

    Thanks Ozzy,

    Our email is having some trouble. The site has been under attack again.

    Hey Ozzy,
    If you still have any available, put me down for a trade for one.

    Let me know,

    I saw those konjac auctions on ebay. I'm amazed what ridiculous prices people will pay just to have a plant others don't. That guy was also selling "nightstick" and "leo song". All very nice plants, but I'll wait a few years when availability is abundant.
