Amorphophallus laoticus grows from a long vertical tuber, rather like an over-stretched carrot. These can reach quite a length, and it is recommended to plant in a long pot as the plant gets older. We are offering just a few seed raised tubers, now three years old. Nice and strong and which will go on to make decent plants.
The foliage is deeply segmented and quite dainty in appearance, up to 60cm tall and deep green edged with a maroon trim. Wonderful! The impressive inflorescence can sit on top of a 120cm tall peduncle. We have found that a very free draining compost is essential for this species.
In the wild, Amorphophallus laoticus is found growing in limestone pockets in Laos.
