I think the red colour is the key to the probability that it is koratensis. I never saw red in proper paeoniifolius. Koratensis has more variation in colour than paeoniifolius.

Hi  Wilbert!

Nice to read some lines from you......

What made me frown were the dark purple spots on the petiole, let alone that I havn't seen too many different paeonifolius genotypes.

@ Peter

yes, I have heard of paeonifolius with smooth petioles; as far as I remember selections for agricultural use.

Thank to all of you who replied so far!

I'll forward your comments to the owner of the plant via our Amorphophallusforum.

Happy growing, Bernhard.

I would not discount paeoniifolius smooth, apart from the fact that smaller and younger plants of this species may be smooth and at a later age warty. The red colouration in it may also point to koratensis......... Often mistaken for paeoniifolius when in leaf.
