    I have new pictures sorry for the wait its a big jump in size.. I dont really plan on getting seeds because i dont have pollen and also i think it would pull to much energy out of the plant and might cause the bulb to split into 2 smaller tubers as it takes a long time to ripen seeds.

    Whoa! That's pretty cool! Are these plants difficult to grow?

    nope they are easy
    just plant the bulb in the a pot in april give it sun and when it tells you that its done at the end of the season pull it out. The bulb increases drastically each year. Give lots of miracle gro. The plant actually in the fall snaps in half thats when you know its going dorment. If you seen the picture of the big plant in the summer on the first page of this topic picture it as someone breaking it in half almost exept it does it itself when its out of energy for the year.

    Ok today is the day im working on getting its pictures uploaded the smell is horrible. The flower has not opened all the way but its giving off its waves of smell. It seems like heat is coming from the flower. yesturday it was starting to open and the smell started but today the smell is creeping from my basement up the stairs and when you come in my front door you can even smell it 30 feet away. I expect it to get worse as its not fully open.

    I believe its fully open i was going to post the pictures yesturday but i had to upload them to my photobucket first and i went to check it and somehow they didnt upload but will definately have them up when i get done from school. Currently in school. This is in my basement as i couldnt possibly sleep in a closed room with this smell.
