    Being stinky is a drawback? That's a plus for me, one major reason why I would grow it haha.

    This one I dug this year, it was tennis ball sized when I planted it this past spring:

    Mine aren't big enough to flower yet but I grow mine for the foliage so no biggy. How long did the stench last, Tommy?

    Actually have a three tiny bulblets (Amorphophallus riverii 'Konjac') for postage if anyone wants them.


    UPDATE: All bulblets have found new homes.

    The stink lasts about 2 days and with Konjac at least I don't find it all THAT bad. It's not good but not bad.
