Plants are near flowering size, ¼” – ½” tubers. With proper care I expect these to flower the following season. The tubers tin the last photograph are representative of this offering.
Plants are divisions of Alan Galloway's AGA 1756-01.
This species is native to Laos. This species as with most Amorphophallus and Arisaema species are seasonally dormant. Plants of this species grows 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 smaller leaflets that is 4” – 6” across. 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. Also, unlike other Amorphophallus, this one can re-flower 2-3 times over summer. The inflorescence is 6” – 8” 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 2” – 3¼” tall, elongate, tapering to a point, cream-white to cream-yellow. The spathe that surrounds the spadix is ¾” – 1¼” long. The spathe is cupped around the base of the spadix. The spathe is white with light green veins. 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.
