Hi, does any one here , grow , or keep Amorphaphallus , in indoor containers
in the house? And what are some of the considerations that one should keep
in mind if one should decide to keep this plant indoors.

Addendum to previous question on Amorphophallus...is it even possible to
grow tubers or bulbs of this species in the house in a zone 5 environment;
has any one been able to do just that? angel

Hello Angel,
i grow my Amorpho's only indoors due to the weather here (the Netherlands).
What you need is bright light and good soil like any other plants. A sort of
small greenhouse is the best ofcourse. What i use is Cocopeat for soil and
every now and then some fertilizer (Miracle Grow). Last year one of the
A.muelleri's got about 200 % bigger due to 2 stems. The bulb's diamter
wasabout 17 cm. (approx. 8 ") So i guess it liked it's soil and fertilizer.
My other Amorpho's also do like this soil.

The species of which I know that they have been grown in a home succesfully
are:

A. konjac
A. bulbifer
A. beccarii
A. johnsonii
A. dunnii (A. odoratus)

But I guess others may have more species to mention.

Of these I would recommend to start with konjac and bulbifer when you are a
newby.

Cheerio,
Wilbert
