These tubers are available as a group of 3, each around 0.5cm in size, perhaps a little larger. Do not be alarmed at the small size of the tubers – mature tubers reach only around 2cm in diameter, and are capable of flowering at a little over 1cm. These are a mixture of the green and silver leafed forms.
Amorphophallus myosuroides is a tiny dwarf species from Laos. Reaching around 8 – 10 inches tall at full size, this is the perfect Amorphophallus for the window-sill!
A single leaf emerges from the tiny tubers, divided into several leaflets, reaching only around 20cm tall. This is followed by a white inflorescence, and can potentially be repeat flowering in the same season. Although small, the tubers rapidly produce offsets. An easy species.
Treat the small tubers in much the same way as seeds. Despite the small size, tubers can be safely stored out of the soil without desiccating.
