    Yes, it smelled pretty bad and the flies were all over it. Luckily, you had to get fairly close to smell it.

    This is an awesome plant! The inflorescence is spectacular, the smell is charming and the leaf is beautiful. And also, it is now known as Typhonium venosum.

    Hi Dave,

    I've got two decent sized ones with three babies so far.
    You beat me to the flowering finish line though.
    I've got A. paeonifolious and A. bulbifer growing nicely.
    My A. odoratus shriveled their tubers and never returned.

    This is one heck of a nice plant, my plant flwoers every year and makes an abundant supply of excess tubers. I gave it to my uncle for his bithday, he said the leave looked very nice, i said wait til it flowers !!! lol

    I've been trying to look for the tuebrs of A. paeonifolius at local asian super markets to plant but nope, can't find a local source of this plant and am still looking.

    How did it get christened Typhonium venosum all of a sudden Larry?
