    Goldtrap,
    The Sauromatum venosum is super easy. Ok, so its not REALLY an Amorphophallus, but its close enough. Would you be interested in trading one of your konjac for some S. venosum tubers? Here's a link to some old pictures of my S. venosum.

    Goldtrap,
    Which one does do well in SoCal? I am growing mine outdoors and it is doing great!

    You do know A. konjac gets HUGE right? Hope you have enough space for it. Your dime sized tubers won't be flowering anytime soon, you've got a few years of waiting ahead of you. I planned on getting some from Cooks, if I can't find somebody who has them for trade.

    Here's a few links:

    If you do a web search on this plant, you'll turn up more info. Good luck with your plant, they grow fast!
