Price per 1x dormant tuber of Amorphophallus longituberosus. Only two available for sale for 2024 – these are shown in the photograph.
Native to Bangladesh, Malaysia and Thailand, Amorphophallus longituberosus grows in areas of moist tropical forest, with the tuber growing in deep pockets of leaf litter. The tuber grows very long (hence the name) and will eventually resemble a long brown carrot in appearance. Consequently, a long, narrow and deep pot will be needed to grow this species to maturity.
The flowers are very variable, and this clone has not yet flowered for me, so I cannot say exactly how it will turn out. But, the spathes can be anywhere from plain green through to shades of cream, occasionally with striations or mottling.
Easily grown in a very well drained compost mix. Keep out of direct scorching sun and in a warm position.
Photos of this species can be found on the late Alan Galloway’s website.
