I thought that the "sweet smelling" Amorphophallus bulbifers are really A.
muelleri. Seems like this has been mentioned before. The two species are very
similar and muelleri has often been distributed as bulbifer.
Is this right? I just changed names on some plants here at Selby from Amorph.
bulbifer to muelleri based on the smell. They flowered last month.
Lord P tell me I have not made a big mistake!
<< My bulbifers, incidentally, came from
Wilbert's distribution of seeds (Thanks Wilbert!) about 4 or 5 years ago in
they were initially identified as "A. variabilis", until they all started
pink. This is their first year for flowers, with tubers about 6" to 6.5" in
diameter. The flowers are things of great beauty, and not too putrid.
