    Well i am excited to say that my amorphophallus konjac with a tuber of 7 inches diameter is going to flower for the first time ever. As of 2 weeks ago i just happened to look at the tuber and i thought to myself, Is it just me or did this shoot up a little. First it was almost unnoticeable but now its obvious that it is going to flower its now grown a little over 2 inches and the shoot seems to grow a quarter of an inch a day at least but its still got some time to go as its only 4 inches high now. It is continuing to grow and the daily growth chart shows that an increase in its daily growth as days go buy. I have only recorded now for 5 days. It has a thick shoot that is starting to get a bright pink tip in the middle. Its still got some time to go. I figured i would post about this as it should be interesting to see such a huge flower for those who might not know what this plant is. Some on this forum i know that you grow them also. As it is a mentioned topic on this miscellaneous plant forum. A picture will be posted possibly in a few minutes of it so far.

    That's pretty awesome. Those are related to that giant stink flower, right?

    Amorphophallus only grow one leaf per season. The leaf starts off in a sheath as shown above. The leaves can get enormous, and are a big frond. When the tuber is mature, every now and then, rather than a leaf, it throws out a flower.
