Something you may find interesting....
Several years ago I bought an "unidentified Arisaema" from Chen Yi that
turned out to be Amorphophallus coaetaneus. Somehow I
managed to stop the rot and save one of the 2 tubers. I hauled it in and
out of a friend's greenhouse until last summer when I decided to plant it (now 2
plants) in the garden and let nature take its course. The first frost did
some damage to the foliage and after it died back to the ground I
covered them in oak leaves. Then we endured the coldest, wettest
winter in recent memory with several nights in a row droppong into the
20's. I was sure they had rotted. Well, the first emerged with
a flower, the first I've ever seen. But then nothing. Almost 2
months later I have leaves on both plants and everything seems fine.
Hopefully, this coming winter will be back to normal and they can thrive
without any extra care.
Is anyone else growing this one outside?
