I have seen light affecting the foliage HEIGHT with many of the amorphophallus species I grow

I had never considered that lighting conditions would affect the size of the
leaf. So a shadier location means a larger leaf... Is that likely to be true
for Amorphophallus in general?

The pot is it's more or less permanent home. When the Amorphophallus
titanums are repotted each year, I decide on pot size based on the current
tuber size. In the bright location where Mr. Stinky resides, the leaf will
be much more compact than you would think. If it wasn't I would worry more
about head room than pot space. In the next few years, maybe even this next
year we will have to find a larger container. That is the largest one made
by this company. I think the next pot will be a custom made from (Amorpho
Homes, Inc.)

As far as the name goes, I guess the first name would be "Mr."...
