Plants are near flowering size, ¾” – 1” tubers. Photograph of tubers is representative of this offering. With proper culture I expect these to flower in 1 year.
Plants are divisions of Alan Galloway’s AGA 2650-01.
This species is native to northern Laos. This species as with most Amorphophallus and Arisaema species are seasonally dormant. Plants of this species grows 4” – 8” tall. Each tuber produces a single stem that terminates with a single “leaf”. Each leaf consists of a small umbrella of 5 - 7 smaller leaflets that is 4” – 7” across. The stem is reddish and fades to green at the base of the leaflets. It is covered in short soft trichomes. The inflorescence is produced from the naked tuber before the leaves are produced. The inflorescence is 5” – 11” tall. The inflorescence is 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 1¼” – 2” tall, pink-tan colored, and much wider than the basal sexual parts. Just below the spadix are the true staminate (male) flowers. These are purple to dark lavender and contrast against the pink-tan spadix appendage. The spathe that surrounds the spadix is 1½” – 2½” long. The spathe white with light pink-purple veins basally. The exterior is white with darker pink-purple veins. Flowers last only a few days. Plants are miniatures!!!
