Re: Is this a common Amorphophallus species?

This species is called Amorphophallus bulbifer and it is one of the more common ones.  Common or not, few Amorphophallus are pink which makes this one very desireable.  The leaftlets are usually edged in violet making the leaf very attractive as well.  If you haven't had this very long, this is also one of the species that reproduces by bulbil formation rather than offsets.  The bublils look like calluses that form at the branch junctions.
