We handle all seeds of Amorphophallus and Anchomanes with good success 
in the following manner. All seeds have sprouted , but sometimes only after
some months:

When the fruits are ripe and become soft, the pulp is completely removed
the seeds. The seeds are washed with water and then sown at a depth of about
0.5“ in pots filled with a mixture of ½ sand ½ soil and a layer of gravel at
bottom of the pot for drainage. The pots are placed in a normal room with a 
slightly increased temperature of about 24° C = 75° F. ( In summer the 
temperature may be higher corresponding to the outside temperature ) The 
substrate is kept humid by watering when it seems to be necessary.

We had received an infructescence of Anch. dalzielii from Africa and also
from our own plants. In both cases the first seedlings came up after about
weeks under the described conditions. But we had to wait as many as 7 months
for the latest seedlings.

However, we have learnt to be patient with seeds and seedlings respectively.
