Anyone have the Amorphophallus Konjac? I bought a tuber a few years ago at
garage sale in Southern Ohio and had no idea what it was, until a few days
ago, when I did a search on the web and came across it. It is blooming for
the first time. The flies are having a great time around it and it is
starting to stink. A good sign huh. I have never seen anything grow so fast
in my life. IT grew about 6 feet in a week! The tuber was 13 lbs. and had
divided in two, so it is twins now. Plus I have some baby tubers also.
How rare are the A. Konjac? I'm assuming that is what I have, since it looks
just like all the photos I've seen on websites. I live in Northern Ohio.
