Plants are near flowering size 1½” long stolons with viable growth points. With proper culture I would expect these plants to flower in 1 year.

This species is native to Bolikhamxay Province, Laos. This species as with most Amorphophallus and Arisaema species are seasonally dormant. Plants of this species grow 10” – 16” tall. Each tuber produces a single stem that terminates with a single “leaf” OR an inflorescence. Each leaf consists of an umbrella of smaller leaflets that is 8” - 12” across. The leaf stem is green to grey-green with a pink-red blush. The plant alone is very ornamental. The inflorescence is produced from the naked tuber before the leaves are produced. The inflorescence is 10” – 20” tall and single “flowered”. The “flower” is actually a modified inflorescence that consists of the spathe (outer ornamental part) and the spadix (internal sexual bits). The spadix is 1” – 1½” tall. The entire spadix arches forward out of the spathe. The spadix appendage (apical non-sexual part) is white to cream-yellow with a blunt apex. The spathe that surrounds the spadix is 1½” – 3” long. The spathe arches forward over the arching spadix. The exterior of the spathe is green fading to white at its apex. The interior is white, cream, or white flushed green. If pollinated, the Infructescence produces green berries that turn orange then red when mature. It is important to wear gloves if you harvest the berries as they juice can stain and irritate mammalian skin.
