seeds of ALL species of Amorphophallus should be kept as moist as
and should be planted as quickly as possible and kept moist
> Does the pulp surrounding the seeds ned to be removed before sowing?
most likely yes........although I have never planted any with the pulp left
Am. henryi and kiusianus are notorious for taking months, even a couple of
to germinate, especially when planted in pots.
Last fall I planted a handful of both these species out in the garden and
spring the sprouted enmass! I can't say for sure if going through a US zone
7 winter speeded
up the sprouting process or not.
