Amorphophallus titanum

Regular price $39.99

The famous corpse flower is renown for having the largest inflorescence in the world.  It blooms over a few days and produces a stench like carrion in order to attract its pollinators. 

We have found Amorphophallus titanum to be easy growers in our warm greenhouse.  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 huge corms weighing over 100 pounds and will bloom in 5-10 years.
