Amorphophallus konjac in bloom

MonsteraMan(5)March 27, 2013

My amorphophallus konjac has been in bloom for a couple weeks now. The rancid smell is finally over, but the inflor. is still beautiful! It topped out at 6'7" in height from a 15 lb, 10.5" diameter tuber. I had to keep him in the garage with heat on him because the smell was not tolerable indoors. Once the smell decreased, he came back inside. Amorphophallus are a strange yet beautiful species of plants!

Awesome Monstera!

That is a huge bloom and it is neat that the bloom lasts quite a long time.
I am just now starting konjacs after several years of admiring them. I was going to purchase huge flowering-size tubers but I decided to start out with medium-size tubers so I myself can grow the plants and get them to flower next year or the year after. I have them in the ground and in pots already and will post pics when they start to leaf out.

WOW!!! That is one nice shot!! Bet she smells pretty too LOL.
Can't wait for mine to come up, though I don't see them blooming this year due to the drought:(
How old is that plant? >5 years?
