Re: Strange Amorphophallus Titanum Growth

This growth could just be an injury on the stem being healed. It  does 
however remind me of a strange phenomenon I recorded last year of a 
Colocaisa which was producing similar odd growths on the stems. This odd 
growth swelled in the stem and eventually split the stem. once split a 
new leaf formed out of the opening. I later found that a tuber had 
formed in the stem causing the swelling. This variety of Colocasia seems 
to be the only one I have seen that produces these mutations and it is 
very erratic. Possibly ideal growing situations are at hand.
