The first time I have gotten an Amorphophallus to flower. I believe its an Amorphophallus konjac..

I had it dug up and in the garage for the winter to prevent it rotting in the ground. had it up on a shelf next to some ornamental items and my partner noticed the flower, already to this stage. I've grown these guys for a good 10 years and the first flower happens totally by accident, go figure.

What a cool looking plant! Sounds like they like a dry period before blooming.

Oh that was good to see

good job you didn't miss the flowering of the plant
Did it smell bad when in flower. Expect so.
