Grow an Amorphophallus today

As you can see in the photos, this plant is beautiful. It's very easy to grow. I grow my plants in part shade and they do just fine. Allow the plant to die back in the fall. Don't leave them out in the frost. The larger tubers I just store dry in a box in the basement. The smaller tubers leave in the small pot. Simply start watering them in early April or if your lucky to live in a warmer climate a little earlier. It may take a month or more before you start to notice growth. These plants are very drought tolerant. I've never seen one wilt. This summer I only water the smaller plants a couple of times. They did just fine. Enjoy growing this plant!!!!
