Amorphophallus konjac in bloom

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.

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?
