    A favorite summer plant

    Amorphophallus riverii 'Konjac'
    The tuber of mine haven't gotten big enough to flower, but that's okay -- I can wait. I grow them more as foliage plants anyway. Love the "tree-like" look of the leaf.

    That plant looks like it belongs in a Dr. Seuss book or something. I like it. I would like to grow amorphos, but my parents would complain about the smell! LOL

    Not a big deal. Typically the tuber has to get about the size of a softball before being big enough to bloom and it takes years to get that size, which means years of enjoying the plant itself first. And even then, there is no reason you HAVE to let it bloom. I got my original bulb years ago from the parents of a buddy of mine. They let theirs bloom the first time just to see what the stench was like. Now they just cut off any bloom spikes and continue to grow them as foliage plants.

    These are about as close to "idiot proof" as a plant can get, Travis.
