[aroid-l] Amorphophallus seed production

  • Subject: [aroid-l] Amorphophallus seed production

This year, I pollinated several flowers of Amorphophallus konjac to produce seed. Each resulting infructescence of ripening fruit, not surprisingly, has completely inhibited the development of the leaf that is normally produced during the summer. Since the fruit are just now ripening, does anyone know if these bulbs will still attempt to produce a leaf this year after the fruit is removed or will they wait until next spring to initiate a leaf? I am concerned that they will not have sufficient time to maintain a leaf this summer before winter arrives. Or has the production of fruit drained the bulbs beyond recovery? In other words, are Amorphophallus monocarpic if they produce seed?
