Amorphophallus titanum seeds – the Titan Arum!
Available as single seeds or packs of 2 or 3.
We are very pleased to offer responsibly sourced Amorphophallus titanum seed! It has been many years since we were last able to offer seed of this most impressive species. The seed is fresh and in perfect shape, perfectly prepared and stored and just starting to germinate.
Seed of this species occasionally crops up on other selling platforms, often harvested without thought from wild populations. This seed is responsibly sourced from Western Sumatra.
Amorphophallus titanum is the most iconic member of the genus, and can reach the largest proportions of all Amorphophallus. Remarkably, it is a relatively easy plant to grow for the hobbyist. Grow in a good quality well drained compost. We tend to use a 3 part mix of good quality compost, perlite and vermiculite. A heated propagator or heat mat is useful for aiding germination.
Seedlings tend to grow for around 18 months before entering dormancy, after which, store the tubers virtually dry.
