    That konjak is huge! I'd love to grow these, just for the repulsive smell.

    I got some bulbs from a swap a few months back of both amorphophallus and sauromatum..I'm learning about them myself...haha i can't wait for the flower, the smell is too awesome! Repulsive or not, that is what makes them so unique lol, hence why i want them Good luck! I'd love to see more pics of Amorpho's and Sauromatums
    Check out my gardening journal and progress on MyFolia , my trade list at Google Docs and I look forward to learning and sharing plant knowledge!

    @Cremmy18: I know you're from RI, did you get it from here? If so I had *absolutely* no idea that they grow here, that would be pretty cool.
    @everyone: On a scale of -1.7 to 10 how bad does it stink? Does it just keep stinking obnoxiously forever or just a little while? BTW cool plants and pics

    I actually received this swap a few months ago..probably like back in December from somewhere in the states...My amorpho bulbs are so tiny (I'm told 2-3 year olds), that I do not think they will be producing flowers anytime soon However, my Sauromatum bulb is looking ready to bloom this summer (told that it is a 7 yr old bulbs). From the tons of chatting/researching I've done about the flower, I have gathered it is somewhere between an 8-10 in smell, at least when kept inside the house lol! I've read it will keep greenhouse visitors at bay too No direct experience with the smell yet myself, But i can already smell something interesting about the bulb when I take it out of its box...so I can only imagine how much "fun" it'll smell in full bloom haha! My new collection of Voodoos and Amorphos.

    Sauromatum Venosum - 7 yr

    2 Amorphos, 1 sauromatum
