    Talking Amorphophallus konjac Starting To Flower

    My Amorphophallus konjac is putting up a flower stalk
    Excited
    As I wasn't expecting it to flower for at least another year or two

    Got it a few years ago as a corm about the size of a nickel
    So it's only in its 3rd year of growth

    Kool, I love Amorphophallus konjac flowers. I love to invite the neighbors over to smell it. They always stick their nose in and take a deep breath.

    Nice job DETHCHEEZ, those plants look very healthy.

    Awesome! How large is the corm you planted that is going to bloom? I have some Sauromatum venosum that I started growing last year but did not bloom yet. The parent corms I have are maybe 2-2.5 inches wide and after digging them up last fall I have babies anywhere between .5-1.5 inches. Just wondered how large yours was for comparison to see if maybe blooming was in my future too, at least for the parent corms...

    You can see pics of the Amorphophallus konjac corm at~ http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/...73898394PbxcWv
    It's about the size of a big orange & weighed about 3 1/2lbs

    My Sauromatum venosum corms bloomed at 2 1/2 to 3in wide


    Good luck with them
    Maybe you'll get a flower this year
    If not you should next year
    The corms get big Fast
