The famous corpse flowers are renown for having some of the most bizarre inflorescences in the world. They bloom over a few days and produces a stench like carrion in order to attract its pollinators.
Amorphophallus plicatus is known to be even more colorful and showy than the gigantic titanum. Check out its inflorescence. We find this species to be an easy grower. We grow it in a mix of equal parts peat, perlite/pumice and orchid bark and use 1/2 strength osmocote plus applied in the soil every 6 months. We make sure it's always above 60 degrees with high humidity. They die down to their corms periodically and will rest for a few months before putting out new stems. Given appropriate conditions, they will produce large corms and will bloom in 3-5 years.
