Re: id of a very strange plant please

Nancy and Peter, thanks for your input and confirmation!


Steve, a friend in our www.amorphophallus-forum.de (translation button at the very end of forum page) saw my post here, too, and wrote that he got seeds from a friend from Texas recently.


The plant flowers as long as there is enough water; during droughts it survives as a tuber without leaves.

So I guess that seeds can be collected easily.


Note: All parts of plant are poisonous if ingested ( http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/133578/ )


Happy growing, Bernhard.

            Definitely Aristolochia and 99% likely A. erecta.

My thought is Aristolochia also

Looks like one of the Texas aristolochias, maybe A. erecta from the
leaves. Very nice, in any case.
