This is a miniature hybrid Amorphophallus. It is a hybrid of two Laotian species myosuroides ‘Silver Center’ and pulchellus. As with most Amorphophallus and Arisaema species are seasonally dormant. HOWEVER, the miniature species can be semi-evergreen if kept warm and watered all year. Plants of this hybrid grow 5” - 8” tall. Each tuber produces a single stem that terminates with a single “leaf”. Each leaf consists of a small umbrella of 5 - 7 leaflets that is 3” – 5” across. Each leaflet of ‘Majda’ has a central silvery watermark that covers the central ¼ - ½. The stem is green. Unlike other Amorphophallus, the inflorescence is produced a few weeks after the leaves are produced. Inflorescences top the leaves by a few inches. The inflorescence is 6” – 8” tall. The inflorescence is single “flowered” and the “flower”. The “flower” is actually a modified inflorescence that consists of the spathe (outer ornamental part) and the spadix (internal sexual bits).  Flowers have a rather strong sweet fragrance of Freesia and orange baby aspirin. The spadix is 2½” – 3½” tall, elongate, tapering to a point, cream-yellow to cream-orange. The spathe that surrounds the spadix is 1” - 1¾” long. The spathe is cupped around the base of the spadix. The spathe is white with light green veins. The base of the inside is purple-red. Flowers last only a few days. This is a miniature plant.

 

Note: Plants are signaled to enter dormancy when night time temperatures drop to  60F to the upper 50's.
