    My plan was to keep outside during the spring and summer and only have it inside during winter. (when it's presumably not in flower)

    lol, yeah. Probably, also to make it easier to collect the pollen and to pollinate.

    Mine flowered in late winter, too cold for outdoors!

    Ok, perhaps I should wait until I have a greenhouse to keep one of these. Oh well.

    If you can find one large enough, I've heard you can keep the smell contained with plastic bags......and during winter they're mostly not much to look at anyway unless they flower, since they can be dormant for like 7 months of the year in some cases (like mine currently).
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Yup. It's kind of a shame they stink because the 'Konjac' flower is gorgeous. Deep,shiny red.

    Sure you can ... If you enjoy looking at a pot of dirt over the winter. . As was mentioned, they are winter dormant. Works well for me that way as does not take up much room over the winter. I just dig up the corm, let it dry off, brush off all the dirt and remove the shriveled roots, and plop it in an open box that I then leave in a closet/laundry room. Requires zero attention until I pot it up in the spring.

    Very easy grower, IME. Won't bloom until corm gets softball sized or bigger which can take years, but I grow it for its foliage. If grown in full sun, get a much shorter (but very sturdy) leaf than what Hawken mentioned. Corms offset easily too. If you get a konjac, don't spend a lot. For that matter, I'll probably have offsets available this fall. Don't know whether I'll use them as trade fodder, or giveaways, or next year's NASC auction.

    Yes. Allows the activity of the flies (its pollinators) to be viewed and broadcast.
