Anyone does: it is Amorphophallus lewallei.


Is this the normal size of bloom for lewallei? I received seed of this from you a few years ago (as I think did a few others reading this) and remarkably I have managed to keep a few alive until now <grin> in my less than ideal conditions........ I did not realise the flower was such a dainty thing. Very cute (I know, hopelessly addicted if I can call an Amorphophallus "cute"! LOL) isn't it!!?? I knew the colouration to expect, but as is so often the case the picture I saw gave no real reference to size.

So.... is this just a small flower, or is this the size to be expected? For a flower of this size how big a tuber would be expected?

Thanks for any help.
