    I haven't got a greenhouse either but I intend to get some someday when I'm able to move outta this condo and get an old farmhouse but until then Amorphos (and other big plants) make fine houseplants. I Scored mine off ebay about $25 each (+ shipping) for seedlings.

    Here's my Amorphophallus hewittii (i.e. Bornean titanum):


    Plenty of time to get those greenhouses setup!

    LOL I hear ya! I want a few green houses myself. But would need to invest in a special one that would be tall enough to house that monster once it does get large! Good luck and it looks like its doing very well. I may have to hollar at you about some of those one day!

    Both mistletoe and Rafflesia are definite parasites, the main difference is mitletoe has stems and leaves with rootlike structures(mycelium like) in the host plant whereas Rafflesia has no stems, no leaves just the roots inside the host.

    I think a lot of the species of Rafflesia are also very host specific, growing only in particular plants. Usually large liana or tree species.

    I had the trouble with mine that it was slightly leggy but this year it is really fat and alot stronger looking. It didnt grow any taller but the new petiole is bigger in width. Mine is about to move itself back in sidde for the winter.

    Wow strange seeing Amorphophallus collectors here! I myself have an A.bulbifer and an A.prainii! I hope to soon (this fall) to expand with getting some more along with some more CPs! Strange how all my plant interests somehow connect!
